LLORET, Elena  and  PALOMAR, Manuel. Text summaries: new challenges in Web 2.0. Subj. procesos cogn. [online]. 2010, vol.14, n.2, pp.113-126. ISSN 1852-7310.

This article presents a preliminary study of the phenomena present in Web 2.0, specifically in blogs and how they are reflected in the corresponding generated summaries. The main objective is to provide a measure of the occurrence of these phenomena in both blogs and summaries. The presence of these phenomena in the summaries has as a direct consequence in their diminishing quality in terms of grammar accuracy or coherence. Preliminary results obtained show that the new text genres derived from Web 2.0 contain a great quantity of linguistic typical traits which need to be tackled with appropriate tools for these traits not to propagate to other tasks of Natural Language Processing, in particular, in this study, to the text summaries. In addition, possible solutions to address the problem are proposed, in order that the quality of the summaries might remain unaffected by the occurrence of these phenomena.

Keywords : Text summaries; Grammar accuracy; Linguistic traits.
