This paper presents a computational model of language generation, based on Phase Theory, that automatically constructs sentences from underlying numerations. This model incorporates explicit algorithms that determine selection and merger of Lexical Items from a subnumeration, determine the labels of Merged syntactic elements, account for movement of elements within a derivation, and account for when phrases are sent to Spell-Out. This paper shows how this model automatically produces the derivation of an English wh-question.
