Key Sentences and the Problem of Automatic Text Summarization
Fundamental and Applied Linguistics
(Bachelor’s programme)
10
2016
This capstone project is devoted to the use of key sentences in solving the problem of automatic text summarization.

The theoretical chapter is focused on the study of key sentences as an important structural and semantic component of text as well as description of their syntagmatic and paradigmatic relations. In addition, it compares the sets of key sentences and the results of automatic text summarization (TextAnalyst v2.01, VisualWorld, project "Автоматическая суммаризация текста").

The practical chapter describes the development and implementation of a system for automatic extraction of key sentences, using their formal linguistic features. This system has been tested on 40 texts of articles published by socio-political weekly journal "Литературная газета" and online magazine "ПостНаука".
