In this paper, we review Dale's [1989] algorithm for determining the content of a referring expres- sion. The algorithm, which only permits the use of one-place predicates, is revised and extended to deal with n-ary predicates. We investigate the problem of blocking 'recursion' in complex noun phrases and propose a solution in the context of our algorithm.
