In this paper, we describe how quantifiers can be generated in a text generation system. By taking advantage of discourse and ontological information, quantified expressions can replace entities in a text, making the text more fluent and concise. In ad- dition to avoiding ambiguities between distributive and collective readings in universal quantification generation, we will also show how different scope orderings between universal and existential quanti- tiers will result in different quantified expressions in our algorithm.
