Building a resource for evaluating the importance of sentences

Schiffman, Barry

This paper will introduce a new lexical resource for measuring the importance of short segments of text, such as sentences. The resource, a list of words compiled automatically from a large background corpus of news articles, can provide evidence that a text segment is globally important, that is intrinsically interesting, not only interesting in relation to a specified topic or set of documents.
