This paper outlines a text generation system suited to a large class of information sources, relational databases. We focus on one aspect of the problem: the additional information which needs to be spe- cified to produce reasonable text quality when gen- erating from relational databases. We outline how databases need to be prepared, and then describe various types of domain semantics which can be used to improve text qualify.
