    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.
