Abstract: The generation of natural language phrases from Linked Open Data can benefit from a significant amount of information available on the internet, as well as from the existence of properties within them, which appears, mostly, in the RDF format. These properties can represent semantic relationships between concepts that might help in creating sentences in natural language. Nevertheless, research in this field tends not to use the information in RDF. We support that this is a factor that might foster the generation of more natural phrases. In this scenario, this research explores these RDF properties for the generation of natural language phrases. The short sentences generated by the algorithm implementation were evaluated regarding their fluency by linguists and native English speakers. The results show that the sentences generated are promising regarding sentence fluency.
