Recently the problem of choosing communicatively adequate lexemes has attracted much interest in the NL generation community. The problem is so fascinating because it includes a variety of subproblems that relate to all parts of the generation process. Up to now, many of the subproblems have been identified, and solutions have been suggested for each. However, steps towards an integrating approach to lexical choice are still missing. This paper looks at dependencies between some of the subproblems.
