During the last decade, there has been a shift from developing natural lan- guage generation systems to developing generic systems that are capable of pro- ducing natural language descriptions di- rectly from Web ontologies. To make these descriptions coherent and accessi- ble in different languages, a methodol- ogy is needed for identifying the gen- eral principles that would determine the distribution of referential forms. Pre- vious work has proved through cross- linguistic investigations that strategies for building coreference are language depen- dent. However, to our knowledge, there is no language generation methodology that makes a distinction between languages about the generation of referential chains. To determine the principles governing referential chains, we gathered data fro...
