Abstract:  Text Summarization is a reductive transformation of source text to summary text through content reduction by selection and/or generalization on what is important in the source. It is the process of distilling the most important information from a source (or sources) to produce an abridged version for particular user (or users) and task (or tasks).  The process of producing summaries automatically is Automatic Text Summarization. This paper produces a survey of the cohesion based summarization technique: Lexical Chain.

Keywords: Automatic text summarization, Extracts, Cohesion, Lexical Chains.
