Current approaches to generating multi-sentence text fail to consider what the user may infer from the dif- ferent statements in a description. This paper presents a system which contains an explicit model of the infer- ences that people may make from different statement types, and uses this model, together with assumptions about the user's prior knowledge, to pick the most ap- propriate sequence of utterances for achieving a given communicative goal.
