Douglas E. Appelt

This paper describes recent research on a natural-language-generation system that is based on planning. A system named KAMP is described that is capable of producing English sentences as part of a plan to enlist the cooperation of another agent in achieving a goal involving a change in the physical state of the world. The planner uses knowledge about the different subgoals to be achieved and linguistic rules about English to produce sentences that satisfy multiple goals through the realization multiple illocutionary acts.
