The main focus of this work is to investi- gate robust ways for generating summaries from summary representations without re- curring to simple sentence extraction and aiming at more human-like summaries. This is motivated by empirical evidence from TAC 2009 data showing that human summaries contain on average more and shorter sentences than the system sum- maries. We report encouraging prelimi- nary results comparable to those attained by participating systems at TAC 2009.
