Abstract : This paper presents two extensions of the standard Dale and Reiter generation algorithm for definite descriptions: one to deal with inference and the generation of bridging descriptions, the other to address the problems raised by incrementality. The paper concludes by discussing the results of a corpus study which gives some pointers for further research on the generation of referring expressions.
