We have developed a summarization method that creates a snmmary suitable for tim p,'ocess of sifting information retrieval results. Unlike conventional methods that extract ilnportant sen- tences, this method constructs short phrases to reduce the burden of reading long sentences. We have developed a prototype summarization system tbr Japanese. Through a rather large-scale task~ based experiment, the sumnmry this system creates proved to be effective to sift IR results. This summarization method is also applicable to other languages such as English.
