Text summarization is a process of extracting text by virtue of reduction of document contents while preserving the salient information intact. By using different set of parameters like position, format and type of sentences in an input text, frequency of words in a text etc., techniques have been developed. But the parameters vary depending on source of input texts. This in turn affects the performance of the algorithms. In this paper, we present a new method of automatic text summarization by making use of lexical cohesion in the text. Until now lexical chains have been used to model lexical cohesion. These lexical chains are sequences of words having semantic relations between them. In our proposed algorithm, we have used a modification of lexical chains to model the relationships that exist between words.
