An Appendix to the booklet offers examples of the textual content process in operation.

This schema is appropriate as the response structure for any question type when an object similar to the questioned object has been discussed in the immediately preceding discourse or is assumed to be familiar to the reader.
7) The 16 ft. Hobie Cat has a main and a jib and the 14 ft. Hobie Cat has only a main. Figure 2-0: Schema Recursion Full recursion, such as is illustrated in the above example, is not 33 Text generation currently implemented in the TEXT system. In order for the system to be fully recursive, a schema must be written for each rhetorical predicate. Right now, schemata for only four of the predicates (out of a total of ten predicates) are written. ) Another, perhaps more interesting side to the recursive use of schemata is the question of when recursion is necessary.
When this is not the case, the identification schema is used for definition questions and the attributive schema is used for information questions. The test for what kind of information is available is a relatively simple one. If the questioned object occurs at a higher level in the knowledge base hierarchy than a pre-determined level, the constituency schema is used. Note that the higher an entity occurs in the hierarchy, the less descriptive information is available to describe the set of instances it represents since the larger the class, the less common features occur across it.
