Unsupervised Sentence Simplification Using Deep Semantics

  title={Unsupervised Sentence Simplification Using Deep Semantics},
  author={Shashi Narayan and Claire Gardent},
We present a novel approach to sentence simplification which departs from previous work in two main ways. First, it requires neither hand written rules nor a training corpus of aligned standard and simplified sentences. Second, sentence splitting operates on deep semantic structure. We show (i) that the unsupervised framework we propose is competitive with four state-of-the-art supervised systems and (ii) that our semantic based approach allows for a principled and effective handling of… CONTINUE READING
