This paper presents an approach to incrementally generating locative expressions. It addresses the is- sue of combinatorial explosion inherent in the con- struction of relational context models by: (a) con- textually defining the set of objects in the context that may function as a landmark, and (b) sequenc- ing the order in which spatial relations are consid- ered using a cognitively motivated hierarchy of re- lations, and visual and discourse salience.
