Sentence generation as planning

Alexander Koller and Matthew Stone

In Proceedings of the 45th Annual Meeting of the Association of Computational Linguistics (ACL), Prague, 2007.

In this paper, we translate sentence generation from TAG grammars with semantic and pragmatic information into a planning problem by encoding the contribution of each word declaratively and explicitly. This allows us to tap into the recent performance improvements in off-the-shelf planners. It also opens up new perspectives on referring expression generation and the relationship between language and action.
