Author: Hewett, F.
Published in: Proceedings of the 4th Workshop on Computational Approaches to Discourse (CODI 2023), 173-179
Year: 2023
Type: Academic articles

We present a corpus of parallel German-language simplified newspaper articles. The articles have been aligned at sentence level and annotated according to the Rhetorical Structure Theory (RST) framework. These RST annotated texts could shed light on structural aspects of text complexity and how simplifications work on a text-level.
