Abstract

[The Textometer: A Tool for the Study of the Structure of a Discourse and its Marking: A. Presentation and Justification of a New Task for the Study of the Discourse Structure]

 

In order 10 uncover the structure of a discourse or to validate some hypotheses about it, researchers classically ask judges to segment the text. The analysis of the answers of a large number of judges allows the derivation of the hierarchical organization. However, such a procedure does not indicate whether each judge perceived the structure nor whether the interjudge agreement is high. We first analyze the most important works about the subjective structure of a discourse and present their methodological limitations. We then propose a more efficient tool, the textometer, that allows judges to indicate in a analogical way the entire structure of a text.
