The research is concerned with the development of an engine for inferring discourse structure from extended texts. This engine, which we will refer to as the Discourse Structure Builder (DSB), is intended to automatically infer a relation between any pair of discourse units (du) in a given text and hence, build the discourse structure for that text. A set of short English essays written by lower secondary school students is used for training and testing the engine.
