Abstract: Referring expression generation has recently been the subject of the first Shared Task Challenge in NLG. In this paper, we analyse the systems that participated in the Challenge in terms of their algorithmic properties, comparing new techniques to classic ones, based on results from a new human task-performance experiment and from the intrinsic measures that were used in the Challenge. We also consider the relationship between different evaluation methods, showing that extrinsic task-performance experiments and intrinsic evaluation methods yield results that are not significantly correlated. We argue that this highlights the importance of including extrinsic evaluation methods in comparative NLG evaluations.
