Bocănială, Cosmin Dănuţ
The textual idea could be characterized through a series of either detailing the current form of idea or continuing a previous form of it. Every element of the series has associated a span of the given text that carries it. If we are to relate different spans of text according to relationship between corresponding elements of the series, we will obtain a possible representation of discourse structure. In this paper we take a set of texts and represent their structure in the above manner. The purpose is to give researchers the possibility to asset our manner to represent discourse structure.
