Summary

An algorithm for generating a structural syntactic surrogate of English text is defined in this paper. The "performance" of the surrogate is judged empirically according to adherence to the following criteria: (1) The surrogate is an organized representation of natural language text; (2) The algorithm which produces the surrogate is equally applicable to any English text; (3) The surrogate may be derived solely by computer processing; (4) The major concepts (or themes) of the text are clearly discernable and/or mechanically derivable from the surrogate; (5) The document may be derived from the surrogate; and (6) The surrogate is feasible to implement. That is, it is not inordinately expensive in computer processing time nor storage, and does not rely upon human processing, preprocessing or interpretation. Possible applications and derivations of the surrogate are explored and discussed. (Author/NH)
