Central Unit Detector for Spanish

In the framework of the Rhetorical Structure Theory (RST by Mann and Thompson, 1987), this central unit detector is developed to detect a central unit in scientific abstract texts in Spanish (ES). First, a ES segmenter or manual segmentation has to be performed to get the Elementary Discourse Units (EDUs) of a text. To do so, insert manually a line break for each EDU.
