RST – Drawing rhetorical structure analysis diagrams in

This package is of interest for people working in linguistics and language technology.

Drawing rhetorical analyses is no fun when you need to change and update diagrams as you refine your work, or, more importantly, if a lot of analyses are to be drawn. Voila, there we go: This package enables us to typeset beautiful diagrams with no hassle. It is oriented towards the style of the diagrams shown in Mann&Thompson's Rhetorical Structure Theory and subsequent works. This package works perfectly with () and pdf and does not require any special PostScript capabilities in the output side.
