Abstract

Abstract. This discussion paper describes a sequence of experiments
with human subjects aimed at nding out how an nlg system should
choose between the dierent forms of a gradable adjective. This case
study highlights some general questions that one faces when trying to
base nlg systems on empirical evidence: one question is what task to set
a subject so as to obtain the most useful information about that subject,
another question has to do with dierences between subjects.
