Producing More Readable Extracts by Revising Them

  title={Producing More Readable Extracts by Revising Them},
  author={Manabu Okumura},
In this paper, we rst experimentally investigated the factors that make extracts hard to read. We did this by having human subjects try to revise extracts to produce more readable ones. We then classi ed the factors into ve, most of which are related to cohesion, after which we devised revision rules for each factor, and partially implemented a system that revises extracts.
