Multi-Sentence Compression: Finding Shortest Paths in Word Graphs

  title={Multi-Sentence Compression: Finding Shortest Paths in Word Graphs},
  author={Katja Filippova},
We consider the task of summarizing a cluster of related sentences with a short sentence which we call multi-sentence compressionand present a simple approach based on shortest paths in word graphs. The advantage and the novelty of the proposed method is that it is syntaxlean and requires little more than a tokenizer and a tagger. Despite its simplicity, it is capable of generating grammatical and informative summaries as our experiments with English and Spanish data demonstrate.
