Spoken Language Generation
definition: Whereas the generation of spoken language from semantic representations can be sequentialized into generation of text followed by text-to-speech, using text as an intermediate representation may lose information that was available in the original input, in particular related to information structure relevant for speech output. An integrated solution can avoid this problem and thereby lead to improved quality and/or simpler system architecture.
