Textual structures in a computer based writer's assistant system

Lyn Pemberton, Mike Sharples

The Writer's Assistant system is designed to reduce the cognitive load on the writer during text production, by specifying and managing various constraints on the writing task. Some of these constraints, particularly those relating to the form of the text, may be specified automatically by a system which has knowledge of the prototypical structure of text classes.
