This paper reports our results at DUC-2004 and describes our approach, im-
plemented in a system called Topiary.
We will show that the combination of
linguistically motivated sentence com-
pression with statistically selected topic
terms performs better than either alone,
according to some automatic summary
evaluation measures.
