Title Head-Driven Generation with HPSG
Venue International Conference on Computational Linguistics
Session Main Conference
Year 1998

As HPSG is head-driven, with clear semantic heads, semantic head-driven generation should be simple. We adapt van Noord's Prolog generator for use with an IIPSG grammar in ProFIT. tlowever, quantifiers and context factors are difficult to include in head- driven generation. We must adopt recent theoretical proposals lbr lexicalized scoping and context. With these revisions, head-driven generation with ItPSG is not so simple, bnt it is possible.
