A new approach to structure-driven generation is I)resented that is based on a separate seman- tics as input structure. For the first time, a GPSG- based formalism is complemented with a system of pattern-action rules that relate the parts of a se- mantics to appropriate syntactic rules. This way a front end generator can be adapted to some ap- plication system (such as a machine translation system) more easily than would be possible with many previous generators based on modern gram- mar formalisms.
