|Title:||Natural language generation with tree conditional random fields||Authors:||Lu, W.
|Issue Date:||2009||Citation:||Lu, W.,Ng, H.T.,Lee, W.S. (2009). Natural language generation with tree conditional random fields.

ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||This paper presents an effective method for generating natural language sentences from their underlying meaning representations. The method is built on top of a hybrid tree representation that jointly encodes both the meaning representation as well as the natural language in a tree structure. By using a tree conditional random field on top of the hybrid tree representation, we are able to explicitly model phrase-level dependencies amongst neighboring natural language phrases and meaning representation components in a simple and natural way. We show that the additional dependencies captured by the tree conditional random field allows it to perform better than directly inverting a previously developed hybrid tree semantic parser. Furthermore, we demonstrate that the model performs better than a previous state-of-the-art natural language generation model. Experiments are performed on two benchmark corpora with standard automatic evaluation metrics. © 2009 ACL and AFNLP.||Source Title:||EMNLP 2009 - Proceedings of the 2009 Conference on Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing: A Meeting of SIGDAT, a Special Interest Group of ACL, Held in Conjunction with ACL-IJCNLP 2009||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/40600|
