Portal Search Summarizer



Search Tips   |   Advanced Search


The summarizer used by Portal Search is a tool for summarizing Web pages in the list of search results.

Summarizer returns a summary for documents which have a certain narrative quality, that is, they are coherent, and above a certain, 'telegraphic', length. The summary consists of the three most salient sentences of the original document. The summary is shown with the document in the list of search results.

The summarizer produces summaries for all languages that are supported by the portal. For some languages the summarizer has access to a stemmer program. It uses stems as the base forms for words, as opposed to the lemma forms used by summarizers which have dictionaries. Summaries for these languages can have better quality.
