Adapting SimpleNLG to German

  title={Adapting SimpleNLG to German},
  author={Marcel Bollmann},
This paper describes SimpleNLG for German, a surface realisation engine for German based on SimpleNLG (Gatt and Reiter, 2009). Several features of the syntax of German and their implementation within the current framework are discussed, with a special focus on word order phenomena. Grammatical coverage of the system is demonstrated by means of selected examples.

MucLex: A German Lexicon for Surface Realisation
MucLex is presented, a German lexicon for the Natural Language Generation task of surface realisation, based on the crowd-sourced online lexicon Wiktionary, which contains more than 100,000 lemmata and more than 670,000 different word forms in a well-structured XML file.
A Simple Surface Realization Engine for Telugu
A realization engine for Telugu is reported that automates the task of building grammatically well-formed Telugu sentences from an input specification consisting of lexicalized grammatical constituents and associated features.
Adapting SimpleNLG to Galician language
This implementation is derived from SimpleNLG-ES, the English-Spanish version of this library for the Galician language, and has been tested using a battery of examples which covers the most common rules for Galician.
Enriching the WebNLG corpus
The enrichment of WebNLG corpus is described with the aim to further extend its usefulness as a resource for evaluating common NLG tasks, including Discourse Ordering, Lexicalization and Referring Expression Generation.
Evaluation rules! On the use of grammars and rule-based systems for NLG evaluation
This position paper argues in favour of two alternative evaluation strategies, using grammars or rule-based systems, using WebNLG dataset, which is revealed to have a skewed distribution of predicates.


SimpleNLG: A Realisation Engine for Practical Applications
SimpleNLG, a realisation engine for English which aims to provide simple and robust interfaces to generate syntactic structures and linearise them, and is flexible in allowing the use of mixed representations.
