Planning Argumentative Texts
9410032 | cmp-lg
This paper presents \proverb\, a text planner for argumentative texts. \proverb\'s main feature is that it combines global hierarchical planning and unplanned organization of text with respect to local derivation relations in a complementary way. The former splits the task of presenting a particular proof into subtasks of presenting subproofs. The latter simulates how the next intermediate conclusion to be presented is chosen under the guidance of the local focus.
