    Abstract

    In this paper we describe a cross-linguistic experiment in attribute selection for referring expression generation. We used a graph-based attribute selection algorithm that was trained and cross-evaluated on English and Dutch data. The results indicate that attribute selection can be done in a largely language independent way.
