DPOCL: A Principled Approach to Discourse Planning

R. Michael Young, Johanna D. Moore

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Research in discourse processing has identified two representational requirements for discourse planning systems. First discourse plans must adequately represent the intentional structure of the utterances they produce in order to enable a computational discourse agent to respond effectively to communicative failures [15]. Second discourse plans must represent the informational structure of utterances In addition to these representational requirements we argue that discourse planners should be formally characterizable in terms of soundness
and completeness.
