This paper presents a method for generating multiple paraphrases from ambiguous logical forms. The method is based on a chart structure with edges indexed on semantic information and annotations that relate edges to the seman- tic facts they express. These annotations consist of logical expressions that identify particular realizations encoded in the chart. The method allows simultaneous generation from multiple interpretations, without hindering the genera- tion process or causing any work to be superflu- ously duplicated.
