Hybrid text simplification using synchronous dependency grammars with hand-written and automatically harvested rules

Advaith Siddharthan, Angrosh Mandya
2014 Proceedings of the 14th Conference of the European Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics  
We present an approach to text simplification based on synchronous dependency grammars.  ...  We present a synchronous grammar formalism in which it is easy to write rules by hand and also acquire them automatically from dependency parses of aligned English and Simple English sentences.  ...  Method We describe a text simplification system that uses a synchronous grammar defined over typed dependencies.  ...

Sentence simplification, compression, and disaggregation for summarization of sophisticated documents

Catherine Finegan-Dollak, Dragomir R. Radev
2015 Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology  
However, compression removes words before the selection algorithm can use them, and simplification generates sentences that may be ambiguous in an extractive summary.  ...  Sentence simplification or compression seems on the surface to be a promising solution.  ...  Acknowledgments We would like to thank the members of the CLAIR research group at the University of Michigan for their advice and feedback about this work, as well as the 14 volunteers who evaluated summaries  ...

Semantic based neural model approach for text simplification

Hemanth Somasekar, Dr Kavya Naveen
2018 International Journal of Engineering & Technology  
Text Summarization (TeSu) and Text Simplification (TeSi) are the important ways of simplifying the text for users who are having the poor reading capability, including non-native speakers, functionally  ...  In many text generation tasks, sequence-to-sequence model depends upon approaches of TeSu and TeSi achieves more success, recently.  ...  The simplifications performed by systems such as SRN with the existing methods like the systems of Lexico-Syntactic (LS), LexEv and EvLex TeSi.  ...

Towards the derivation of verbal content relations from patent claims using deep syntactic structures

Gabriela Ferraro, Leo Wanner
2011 Knowledge-Based Systems  
To cope with this problem, we take advantage of the fact that deep syntactic dependency structures of sentences capture all relevant content relations-although without any abstraction.  ...  First, we parse the claims to retrieve the deep syntactic dependency structures from which we then derive the content relations.  ...  Many thanks to all colleagues in PATExpert and, in particular, to our colleagues from the NLP group at UPF, Nadjet Bouayad-Agha, Gerard Casamayor and Simon Mille, for their valuable contributions and help  ...

Challenging stereotypes about academic writing: Complexity, elaboration, explicitness

Douglas Biber, Bethany Gray
2010 Journal of English for Academic Purposes  
The stereotypical view of professional academic writing is that it is grammatically complex, with elaborated structures, and with meaning relations expressed explicitly.  ...  Instead, academic writing is structurally 'compressed', with phrasal (nonclausal) modifiers embedded in noun phrases.  ...  ., Biber, 1988 Biber, , 1992 Biber, , 2006 have shown repeatedly that certain dependent clause types (e.g., because-clauses and WH-clauses) are more strongly associated with speech than writing.  ...

Discourse Strategies Model: an initial phase for discovery of the fact-based statements from descriptive texts

Bruce Calway, Ross Smith
1999 Australasian Journal of Information Systems  
Several theories apply and are discussed as optional approaches (i.e. syntactic and semantic strategies (cf. Clark and Clark 1977; van Dijk and Kintsch 1983), and lexico-grammatical processes (cf.  ...  In combination with fact-based processes, syntactic and semantic processes could be incorporated as a production system and therefore be developed using an approach similar to augmented transition networks  ...  type and syntax.  ...
