The aim of this research is to provide a prin- cipled account of the generation of embed- ded constructions (called parentheticals) and to implement the results in a natural language generation system. Parenthetical construc- tions are frequently used in texts written in a good writing style and have an important role in text understanding. We propose a frame- work to model the rhetorical properties of par- entheticals based on a corpus study and de- velop a unified natural language generation ar- chitecture which integrates syntax, semantics, rhetorical and document structure into a com- plex representation, which can be easily ex- tended to handle parentheticals.
