We present a localisation component that sup- ports the generation of cross-modal deictic ex- pressions in the knowledge-based presentation system WIP. We deal with relative localisations (e.g. , "The object to the left, of object X."), absolute localisations (e.g. , "The object in the upl)er left part of the l)icture"). and corner lo- calisations (e.g. , "The object in the lower right corner of the l)icture"). In addition, we distin- guish two localisation granularities, one less de- tailed (e.g. , "the object to the left. of object X"). and one more detailed (e.g. , "the object above and to the left. of object X."). We consider cor- ner localisations to be similar to absolute local- isations and in turn absolute localisations to be specialisations of relative localisations. This al- lows...
