I’m quit impressed with the Summarize Service in OS X. But its unclear to me, how the service does the summarising. Could someone please explain this to me?

I have done some testing with the summarize service.

As far I can tell the summarize service looks for key words (repeat)

Then it simply removes the duplicates or triplicates pending on your setting in the summarize service.

It looks like the summarize also removes all that do not have the key words in it.

This sentence has summarize service in it.

This sentence does not.

Of course it is bit more complex than my test as a 12 Years old answer explains it: Summarize uses a combination of text pattern matching, grammar parsing and heuristics to eliminate redundant and extraneous text.
