Title: Text Summarization for Turkish
Advisor: Tunga Güngör
Type: PhD
Year: All
Status: Offered

Literature survey on text summarization/sentence extraction will be done. The existing methods will be applied to Turkish texts. In addition, a new method will be proposed. Some characteristics peculiar to Turkish may be taken into consideration and some heuristics in order to increase the success of the method may be formulated. The performances of the methods will be compared in detail. Turkish WordNet may be made use of in developing the method and heuristics.
