Abstract:

This study presents an original and penetrating analysis of the complex
problems surrounding the automatic generation of natural language text.
Laurence Danlos provides a valuable critical review of research in this
important and increasingly active field and goes on to describe a
theoretical model that is thoroughly grounded in linguistic principles. The
model emphasises the semantic, syntactic and lexical constraints that must
be dealt with when establishing a relationship between meaning and form and
it is consideration of such linguistic constraints that determines Danlos'
generation algorithm. The book concludes with a description of a generation
system based on this algorithm which produces texts in several domains and
also a system for the synthesis of spoken messages from semantic
representation. The book is a significant addition to the literature on
text generation and will be of particular interest to all computational
linguists and AI researchers who have wrestled with the problem of
vocabulary selection.
