Abstract: Our research contributes to the design and development of text grammars in a text-abstracting task. We developed a system that parses texts based on the text grammar of a specific text type and that extracts sentences and statements that are relevant to include in the abstract. The system is applied to create 'highlight' abstracts of magazine articles. It employs the knowledge of discourse patterns that are typical for news stories. Browsing a database of article abstracts is one way to select and buy relevant magazine articles on-line.
