The GREC task of the Referring Expression Generation Challenge 2008 is to select appro- priate references to the main subject in given texts. This means to select the correct type of the referring expressions such as name, pro- noun, common,orelision (empty). We employ for the selection different learning techniques with the aim to find the most appropriate one for the task and the used attributes. As train- ing data, we use the syntactic category of the searched referring expressions and addition- ally gathered data from the text itself.
