Comprehension Driven Document Planning in Natural Language Generation Systems
TLDR
An approach to NLG system design which focuses on generating output text which can be more easily processed by the reader is proposed and two simple experiments in content ordering are presented. Expand
Natural Language Generation and Semantic Technologies
TLDR
A survey of the domain of Natural Language Generation with its models, techniques, applications, and investigates how the semantic technologies are drawn into text generation. Expand
Hybrid Natural Language Generation in a Spoken Language Dialog System
Natural Language Generation (NLG) systems have almost reached the state of “market-readiness” now, mostly because hybrid systems of different types have emerged as a de-facto standard. But stillExpand
Narratological Knowledge for Natural Language Generation
TLDR
The paper proposes an architecture for advanced NLG systems that handle narratives, and Domain modelling and meta-knowledge modelling for a narratological structurer are exemplified. Expand
AN OVERVIEW OF SHALLOW XML-BASED NATURAL LANGUAGE GENERATION
The paper gives an overview of shallow XML-based natural language generation, including XML pipeline architectures, text planning with XSLT templates, and transformations from text plan trees to textExpand
Pipelines, Templates and Transformations: XML for Natural Language Generation
TLDR
A number of ways in which XML can be used in natural language generation, including XML-based pipeline architectures, template-based generation with XSL templates, and tree-totree transformations are discussed. Expand
Reusing MT components in natural language generation for dialogue systems
This research has been funded by the Spanish Ministry of Education under Grant TIC2002-00526, and the European FP6 IST Talk Project (507802).
Using Natural Language Generation in Automatic Route Description
TLDR
This paper tackles the problem of generating natural route descriptions on the basis of input obtained from a commercially available way-finding system and demonstrates that it is possible to bridge the gap between underlying data representations and natural sounding linguistic descriptions. Expand
Building domain-independent text generation system
TLDR
This paper investigates an effective method of building domain-independent text generation system and results prove that the system works well and can generate coherent text flexibly. Expand

Automatic generation of technical documentation
TLDR
This discussion is based largely on the experiences with the Intelligent Documentation Advisory System (IDAS) documentation-generation project, and the reactions that various interested people from industry have had to IDAS. Expand
Planning Coherent Multisentential Text
TLDR
A set of 20 relations that span most of what people usually say in English is proposed in the Rhetorical Structure Theory of Mann and Thompson and used in a prototype text planner that structures input elements into coherent paragraphs. Expand
Applied Text Generation
TLDR
This paper will present the system and show how these design objectives led to particular design decisions, and address the problem of portability. Expand
Has a Consensus NL Generation Architecture Appeared, and is it Psycholinguistically Plausible?
TLDR
It is argued that at least some aspects of the consensus architecture among applied NLG systems seem to be in agreement with what is known about human language production, despite the fact that psycholinguistic plausibility was not in general a goal of the developers of the surveyed systems. Expand
Using argumentation to control lexical choice: a functional unification implementation
TLDR
New surface generation techniques that improve on both aspects of surface generation are presented, which allow a purely conceptual input to be expressed by a greater variety of linguistic forms and with more sensitivity to pragmatic factors than was previously possible. Expand
Using natural-language processing to produce weather forecasts
TLDR
The authors discuss the Forecast Generator (FOG), the first application developed on the FPA, which is a bilingual report generator that produces routine and special purpose forecast directly from the Fpa's graphical weather predictions. Expand
Text generation
What do you do to start reading text generation? Searching the book that you love to read first or find an interesting book that will make you want to read? Everybody has difference with their reasonExpand
Automatic Letter Composition for Customer Service
TLDR
This chapter describes an application of Cognitive Systems' Intelligent Correspondence Generator (ICG), which has increased the quality, reduced the complexity, and drastically cut the turnaround time associated with the production of personalized letters at its installation site. Expand
