Comprehension and Analysis of Information in Text: I. Construction and Evaluation of Brief Texts.
Kozminsky, Ely; And Others
This report describes a series of studies designed to construct and validate a set of text materials necessary to the pursuance of a long-term research project on information analysis and integration in semantically rich, naturalistic domains, primarily in the domain of the stock market. The methods and results of six separate experiments on sentence and text categorization and rating are discussed, and the constructed and evaluated materials are presented in various appendixes that make up two-thirds of the report. Plans for use of the materials and for additional research are proposed. The appendixes include sentences within each of six informational categories, sentence properties by categories, stock reports in text format, a propositional analysis of the stock reports, and the distribution of propositions in each sentence set by categories.
