The research area of question generation (QG); in its current form; has a relatively brief history within NLP. A description of the current question generation implementation for Swedish text built on schema parsing is here presented and exemplified. Underlying the current approach is the view of ‘all textual information as answers to questions.’ This paper discusses strategies for enhanced functionality for arbitrary Swedish text through extended question generation. It also brings up some theoretical issues regarding the nature of the task; and concerns practical considerations in an area such as Intelligent CALL (ICALL) where this type of application has been considered for English.
