〇Genichiro kikui1, Shohei Matsuiwa1 (1. Okayama Prefectural University)

Keywords:Title Generation, automatic summarization

In this paper, we introduce {\em a corpus of paragraph titles}. A paragraph title is a short linguistic expression which indicates or summarizes information of a given paragraph. Paragraph titles are useful representation of a text since they express the organization of the text. In this work, we created a corpus consisting of paragraph titles, composed by humans, for English essay texts. The paper describes statistics of the corpus such as length, overlaps between a paragraph and its title. The paper also evaluates existing title generation algorithms with our corpus.
