  • Counterfactual reasoning requires predicting how alternative events, contrary to what actually happened, might have resulted in different outcomes. [...] Key Method Additionally, we include 80,115 counterfactual "branches" without a rewritten storyline to support future work on semi- or un-supervised approaches to counterfactual story rewriting. Finally, we evaluate the counterfactual rewriting capacities of several competitive baselines based on pretrained language models, and assess whether common overlap…Expand Abstract
