Corpora: Cue words/phrases indicating relevant text fragments?

I am working on an HTML summarizer in which I would like to use several
heuristics in parallel - one of them being lexical or phrasal cues, such
as "to summarize", "in conclusion", "in this article" etc. (since frag-
ments following such patterns probably are highly relevant).
Does anybody know if lists of this kind have been made publicly available
somewhere (for English, French and/or German)?

Thanks a lot,
