As part of our work on automatically build- ing knowledge structures from text, we apply machine learning to determine which clauses from multiple narratives describing similar sit- uations should be grouped together as descrip- tions of the same type of occurrence. Our approach to the problem uses textual similar- ity and context from other clauses. Besides training data, our system uses only a partial parser as outside knowledge.
