Corpus Analysis for Revision-Based Generation of Complex Sentences

Jacques Robin, Kathleen McKeown

The complex sentences of newswire reports contain floating content units that appear to be opportunistically placed where the form of the surrounding text allows. We present a corpus analysis that identified precise semantic and syntactic constraints on where and how such information is realized. The result is a set of revision tools that form the rule base for a report generation system, allowing incremental generation of complex sentences.
