Semantic web is gaining popularity as a candidate for next generation World Wide Web. In recent years, there has been a tremendous increase of using Internet on mobile devices and search engines are considered essential for Internet users. The existing search engines have been designed for powerful computers and are highly resource hungry, while mobiles have limited computational resources. In this paper, we study the use of comprehension for aiding the search engine results for mobile users. Our preliminary evaluation shows the promising results for comprehension generation.
