We suggest a generation task that inte- grates discourse-level referring expression generation and sentence-level surface re- alization. We present a data set of Ger- man articles annotated with deep syntax and referents, including some types of im- plicit referents. Our experiments compare several architectures varying the order of a set of trainable modules. The results sug- gest that a revision-based pipeline, with in- termediate linearization, significantly out- performs standard pipelines or a parallel architecture.
