The post element

C-Phrase generates paraphrases of SQL queries when it presents answers or engages the user in clarification dialogues. Often these are fairly rough, being the result of fusing phrases together in a simple generation process. Post-processing substitutions apply to paraphrases to help make them be more natural. For example consider the following repair:

<post from="food eaten fact" to="you ate"/>

The syntax of the post definition is exactly analogous to the element pre:

<!ATTLIST post
          from CDATA #REQUIRED
          to CDATA #REQUIRED
          alive CDATA #IMPLIED
          description CDATA #IMPLIED>
