We propose an architecture for the organisation of linguistic knowledge which allows to (1) separately formulate generalizations for different types of lin- guistic information, and (2) state interrelations be- tween partial information belonging to different lev- els of description. We use typed feature structures for encoding linguistic knowledge. We show the ap- plication of this representational device for the archi- tecture of linguistic knowledge sources for nmltilin- gum generation. As an example, we describe the use of interacting collocational and syntactic constraints in the generation of French and German sentences.
