Investigating Cue Selection and Placement in Tutorial Discourse

Megan Moser, Johanna D. Moore

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Our goal is to identify the features that predict cue selection and placement in order to devise strategies for automatic text generation. Much previous work in this area has relied on ad hoc methods. Our coding scheme for the exhaustive analysis of discourse allows a systematic evaluation and refinement of hypotheses concerning cues. We report two results based on this analysis: a comparison of the distribution of Sn~CE and BECAUSE in our corpus, and the impact of embeddedness on cue selection.
