text summarization, appearance frequency, attractive summary, story
This paper proposes a method to generate an attractive summary from a story and describes an attractive summary generation system based on the method. The system consists of two sections. The one is the section extracting an important part of a story, i.e., the part of a new turn of a story defined by the appearance frequency of new words in a story. The other is the section generating a summary from the extracted important part. This section chooses important sentences and deletes unnecessary phrases from the extracted part. Finally, this paper confirms the validity of the presented approach by subject’s experiments.
