We show that question-based sentence fu- sion is a better defined task than generic sen- tence fusion (Q-based fusions are shorter, dis- play less variety in length, yield more identi- cal results and have higher normalized Rouge scores). Moreover, we show that in a QA set- ting, participants strongly prefer Q-based fu- sions over generic ones, and have a preference for union over intersection fusions.
