Abstract—This paper concentrates on single document multi news Punjabi extractive summarizer. Although lot of research is going on in field of multi document news summarization systems but not even a single paper was found in literature for single document multi news summarization for any language. It is first time that this system has been developed for Punjabi language and is available online at: http://pts.learnpunjabi.org/. Punjab is one of Indian states and Punjabi is its official language. Punjabi is under resourced language. Various linguistic resources for Punjabi were also developed first time as part of this project like Punjabi noun morph, Punjabi stemmer and Punjabi named entity recognition, Punjabi keywords identification, normalization of Punjabi nouns etc. A Punjabi document (like single page of Punjabi E-news paper) can have hundreds of multi news of varying length. Based on compression ratio selected by user, this system starts by extracting headlines of each news, lines just next to headlines and other important lines depending upon their importance. Selection of sentences is on the basis of statistical and linguistic features of sentences. This system comprises of two main steps: Pre Processing and Processing phase. Pre Processing phase represents the Punjabi text in structured way. In processing phase, different features deciding the importance of sentences are determined and calculated. Some of the statistical features are Punjabi keywords identification, relative sentence length feature and numbered data feature. Various linguistic features for selecting important sentences in summary are: Punjabiheadlines identification, identification of lines just next to headlines, identification of Punjabi-nouns, identification of Punjabi-proper-nouns, identification of common-English- Punjabi-nouns, identification of Punjabi-cue-phrases and identification of title-keywords in sentences. Scores of sentences are determined from sentence-feature-weight equation. Weights of features are determined using mathematical regression. Using regression, feature values of some Punjabi documents which are manually summarized are treated as independent input values and their corresponding dependent output values are provided. In the training phase, manually summaries of fifty newsdocuments are made by giving fuzzy scores to the sentences of those documents and then regression is applied for finding values of feature-weights and then average values of feature-weights are calculated. High scored sentences in proper order are selected for final summary. In final summary, sentences coherence is maintained by properly ordering the sentences in the same order as they appear in the input text at the selective compression ratios. This extractive Punjabi summarizer is available online.
