estratto, sintesi, riassunto
Explanation:
Un "abstract" viene "estratto" dal testo per cui non è necessariamente rappresentativo dell'intero.
Invece "summary" e "précis" mi sembrano quasi sinonimi e significano che l'intero testo si riassume utilizzando un minor numero di parole.
Ad orecchio il secondo ha una sfumatura più colta e mi ricordo che al liceo la nostra prof (era cognata di Fred Flintstone) ci chieveda un "précis" e mai un "summary".
Intanto, non hai problemi perchè l'italiano ti offre le due possibilità, oppure "compendio" (che però non mi convince).
Ciao
Angela
