Cue phrases may be used in a discourse sense to explicitly signal discourse structure, but also in a sentential sense to convey semantic rather than structural information. This paper explores the use of machine learning for classifying cue phrases as discourse or sentential.

Machine learning is shown to be an effective technique for not only… CONTINUE READING
