Subject Re: TextMarker language workthrough for text simplification example?
Date Mon, 19 Nov 2012 17:10:37 GMT
Hi Fergal,

I played a bit around and attached the resulting TextMarker project.

The first part of the script is only there for creating some 
annotations. I haven't used ClearTK for a while and was too lazy to 
update it.

The main part with the block looks at sentences with WDTs and creates 
some annotations. The rules with REPLACE are used to remember the 
changes and the rule with EXEC(Modifier) creates a new view with the 
changed document.

The changes are located in the view named "modified":

"The jury also commented on the Fulton court, which has been under fire 
for its practices in the appointment of appraisers."
...becomes...
"The jury also commented on the Fulton court . the Fulton court has been 
under fire
for its practices in the appointment of appraisers."
(I removed some words, because I included no correct identification of 
relative clauses)

"Peter, who just woke up, goes to work."
...becomes...
"Peter goes to work. Peter  just woke up."

It's only a fast and ugly hack, but I hope this helps a bit.

If you have any questions, just ask :-)

Best,

Peter
