architectural descrip- tion of the microprocessor. The system achieves concep- tual generation using a discourse schema system [McK- ewon 1985, Paris 1985]; stylistic generation will be rule- based. The revision component will review the generated text and produce recommendations to the conceptual and stylistic components as to how to improve the text. Kalos takes a knowledge intensive approach. Each com- ponent of the system, including conceptual generation, stylistic generation, and revision, has access to the full knowledge of the system, and they use the same infer- ence system. This use of a unified knowledge base lets the revision component identify easily both the concepts and schema slots from which the surface string was gen- erated. This type of association is crucial for a revis...
