Searching for Narrative Structures

Henrik Schärfe

Based on a knowledge base consisting of a formal relxesentation of a narrative, some algoritinns are discussed for the purpose of computer aided narrative analysis. The algorithms mentioned vmy in complexity from the quite simple such as agent / patient relationship, to more advanced queries that chart deep narrative structures in order to identify Letantial roles and functions. Examples and results discussed in this paper are derived from a formal representation of a full-seaie narration. This representation and the algorithms mentioned are implemented in PRONG.
