Lexical structure and accenting in English and Swedish restricted texts

Research output: Working paper


The issue of describing identity of sense relations that are used in contexts of anaphora to express contextually given information is discussed. In text-to-speech applictions, it is important to model given information, both linguistically and computationallly, since it is associated with tone accent patterns that differ from those on new information. The anlysis is illustrated using restricted texts (newspapers and stock market reports).
