Event recognition We present a program for segmenting texts ac- cording to the separate events they describe. A modular architecture is described that al- lows us to examine the contributions made by particular aspects of natural language to event structuring. This is applied in the context of terrorist news articles, and a technique is sug- gested for evaluating the resulting segmenta- tions. We also examine the usefulness of vari- ous heuristics in forming these segmentations.
