The purpose of this paper is to enhance the quality of new reducing sentence in sentence-generation-based summarizing method by establishing consequence relationship between two action, state or process Vietnamese sentences.
First, types of pairs of Vietnamese sentences based on presupposition about the consequence relationship is classified: the verb indicating action or state at the first sentence is considered as the consequence of the verb indicating action, state or process at the second sentence. Then main predicates in Discourse Representation Structure – a logical form which represents the semantic of a given pair of sentences – is analyzed and inner- and inter-sentential relationships are determined. The next step is to generate the syntactic structure of the new reducing sentence. Finally, a combination with the built set of lexicons is done to complete the new meaning-summarizing Vietnamese sentence.
This method makes the new meaning-summarizing Vietnamese sentence satisfy two requirements: summarize the semantic of the given pair of Vietnamese sentences and have naturalism in common Vietnamese communication. In addition, it is possible to extend the method and apply for the purpose of summarizing the more complex Vietnamese paragraphs as well as paragraphs in other languages.
At the first step, only inter-sentential consequence relationship is considered and this is applied to the limit types of pairs of Vietnamese sentences which have a simple structure.
This study presents improvements in sentence-generation-based summarization method to enhance the quality of new meaning-summarizing Vietnamese sentences. This method proves effective in summarizing the considered pairs of sentences.
