We describe an algorithm for generating
multimodal referring expressions,
based on empirical data. The main
novelties are (1) a decision to point
based on both the efficiency of pointing
(Fitt’s law) and the inefficiency of
a full linguistic description, (2) the explicit
tracking of the ’focus of attention’,
and (3) a threedimensional notion
of salience incorporating linguistic, focus
and inherent salience.
