We derive the rhetorical structures of texts by means of two new, surface-form-based algorithms: one that identifies discourse usages of cue phrases and breaks sen- tences into clauses, and one that produces valid rhetorical structure trees for unre- stricted natural language texts. The algo- rithms use information that was derived from a corpus analysis of cue phrases.
