Previous algorithms for the generation of re- ferring expressions have been developed specif- ically for this purpose. Here we introduce an alternative approach based on a fully generic ag- gregation method also motivated for other gen- eration tasks. We argue that the alternative contributes to a more integrated and uniform approach to content determination in the con- text of complete noun phrase generation.
