Abstract

This paper presents a study of the implementation of a discourse parsing system, where only significant features are considered. Rhetorical relations are recognized based on three types of cue phrases (the normal cue phrases, Noun-Phrase cues and Verb-Phrase cues), and different textual coherence devices. The parsing algorithm and its rule set are developed in order to create a system with high accuracy and low complexity. The data used in this system are taken from the RST Discourse Treebank of the Linguistic Data Consortium (LDC).
