The geometry of the target space of an N = (2, 2) supersymmetry sigma-model carries a generalized Kähler structure. There always exists a real function, the generalized Kähler potential K, that encodes all the relevant local differential geometry data: the metric, the B-field, etc. Generically this data is given by nonlinear functions of the second derivatives of K. We show that, at least locally, the nonlinearity on any generalized Kähler manifold can be explained as arising from a quotient of a space without this nonlinearity.
