Abstract

The task of generating referring expressions, an important subtask of Natural Language Generation is to generate phrases that uniquely identify domain entities. Until recently, many GRE algorithms were developed using only simple and essentially home-made formalisms. Following the fast development of ontology-based systems, reinterpretations of GRE in terms of description logic have been studied. However, the quantifiers generated are still limited, not exceedingthe works covered by existing GRE approaches. In this paper, we propose an DL-based approach to GRE that exploits the full power of OWL2 to generate referring expressions that goes beyond the expressivity of previous GRE algorithms. The potential of DL reasoning in GRE is also discussed.
