This paper describes the input specification lan- guage of the WAG Sentence Generation system. The input is described in terms of Halliday's (1978) three meaning components, ideational meaning (the propositional content to be expressed), inter- actional meaning (what the speaker intends the listener to do in making the utterance), and tex- tual meaning (how the content is structured as a message, in terms of theme, reference, etc.).
