Natural Language Generation

David D. McDonald

Natural language generation (NLG) is the process by which thought is rendered into language. It has been studied by philosophers, neurologists, psycholinguists, child psychologists, and linguists. Here we will examine what generation is to those who look at it from a computational perspective: people in the fields of artificial intelligence and computational linguistics.
