Realizers In Natural Language Processing


Realization (linguistics)

Notes:

RealiZer may also be spelled realiSer.  Realization (aka realisation) is a subtask of Natural Language Generation (NLG), which involves creating an actual text, in a human language, from a syntactic representation.  DSynt stands for “deep syntactic”.  DSyntR stands for “deep syntactic representation”.  DSyntS stands for “deep syntactic structure”, which is a dependency tree whose nodes are labeled with deep lexical units (DLUs).

  • behavior realizer .. a behavior realizer is basically a behavior generator, often based on behavior markup language.
  • chart realizer .. a chart realizer, such as OpenCCG, produces sentences from logical forms as input.
  • linguistic realizer .. a linguistic realizer produces natural language text.
  • multimodal realizer .. a multimodal realizer generates both verbal and nonverbal behavior  in virtual humans, for instance.
  • sentence realizer .. a sentence realizer produces sentences from syntax or logical forms.
  • surface realizer .. a surface realizer generates text from the abstract, syntactic representations of each sentence.

Resources:

  • openccg.sourceforge.net .. an open-source realizer with a number of nice features, including the ability to use statistical language models to make realization decisions.
  • cogentex.com/technology/realpro .. RealPro is a text generation “engine” that performs syntactic realization — i.e., the transformation of abstract syntactic specifications of natural language sentences (or phrases) into their corresponding surface forms.
  • simplenlg.googlecode.com .. a document realizing engine with an API which is intended to be simple to learn and use, and focused on limiting scope to only finding the surface area of a document.
  • kpml .. the oldest realizer, which has been under development in different guises since the 1980s.
  • cs.bgu.ac.il/surge .. a realiser which was widely used in the 1990s, and is still used in some projects today.
