Abstract

A taxonomy of explanatory links connecting sentences in expository texts is presented. It is also shown that there are two types of knowledge, which we have called analytical and empirical knowledge in analogy to the distinction between analytical and empirical sentences, that allow us to find and learn the explanatory connections. The role that the notion of analyticity plays in learning explanatory connections from expository texts is also emphasized. A program that embodies the ideas and that finds and learns explanatory connections in expository texts is also briefly explained. (C) 1996 Academic Press Limited
