We present a new approach to paratactic content aggregation in the context of generating hypertext summaries of OLAP and data mining discoveries. Two key properties make this approach innovative and interesting: (1) it encapsulates aggregation inside the sentence planning component, and (2) it relies on a domain independent algorithm working on a data structure that abstracts from lexical and syntactic knowledge. 1 Research context: hypertext executive summary generation for intelligent decision-support In this paper, we present a new approach to content aggregation in Natural Nanguage Generation (NLG). This approach has been developed for the NLG system HYSSOP (HYpertext Summary System of On-line analytical Processing) which summarizes OLAP (On-Line Analytical Processing) and Data Mining ...
