Discourse Graphbank aimed to define a descriptively adequate data structure for representing discourse coherence structures. This project also investigated the impact of discourse coherence structures on other linguistic processes and natural language applications (e.g. anaphora resolution, summarization and information retrieval), and developed and tested discourse parsing algorithms.


The source data consists of 135 texts from Assoicated Press and Wall Street Journal newswire data annotated with coherence relations. That source material was taken from LDC's TIPSTER releases.


A screenshot of the output of the annotator tool has been provided as an example of this corpus.
