Abstract

Disclosed are a method and system that monitor text in any communication vehicle and dynamically determine whether that text is paraphrased from an actual quotation or is the quotation. The process then transforms or cites the text as necessary, providing credit to the author by means of a citation(s), as well as improving productivity and efficiency for transcription and communication.

Paraphrase And Quote Validation And Transformation

Disclosed is a method to assist a transcriber in determining an originator of a text and paraphrasing existing text.

Transcribers are responsible for compiling input from a variety of sources and providing one clearly written document (e.g., customer status update) to present the information. Often, input is received from multiple parties, which makes it difficult for the transcriber

to identify facts and the source of the information (e.g., first-hand vs. third party). In addition, the transcriber, the user must transform the original text into one common

writing style that is appropriate for the reader/audience.

The disclosed method monitors text in any communication vehicle and determines

whether that text is paraphrased from an actual quotation or is the quotation. The

method includes providing a citation(s) of the actual quotation with a confidence ranking for accuracy or transforms the quotation into paraphrased text that is representative of the author's writing style. The method dynamically identifies paraphrased or quoted text and transform or cites it as necessary in order to provide credit to the author by means of a citation(s), improving productivity and efficiency.

For the purposes of this disclosure, a quotation is defined as follows: "to speak or write (a passage) from another especially in substantiation or illustration" (Merriam-Webster). Herein, 'any communication vehicle' includes everything from formally published text (e.g., books, periodicals, web pages, etc.) to informal text (e.g., emails, instant messages, text messages, etc.). The citation of text and paraphrasing is only limited to the sources that are connected to the system, which can be determined by private and

public entities, including cloud providers.

To implement the method for paraphrase and quotation validation and transformation in a preferred embodiment:


1. The author of the content inputs into any communication vehicle a portion of text

2. Passively, the Natural Language Engine analyzes the text structure, a...
