Understanding Text through Summarization and Analogy

Unknown author (1983-04-01)

Understanding a text exactly in the way that the Text Producer meant the text to be understood is highly unlikely unless the text interpretation process is constrained. Specific understanding-directing criteria are given in the form of a Premise which is a configuration of plot-units. After performing a Premise-directed text summarization, the Text Receiver will have understood the text as the Text Producer intended and will then be able to replace missing relations within the exercises and produce new texts by applying analogy.
