  title={A model-theoretic coreference scoring scheme},
  author={Marc B. Vilain and John D. Burger and John S. Aberdeen and Dennis Connolly and Lynette Hirschman},
This note describes a scoring scheme for the coreference task in MUC6 . It improves o n the original approach l by: (1) grounding the scoring scheme in terms of a model ; (2) producing more intuitive recall and precision scores ; and (3) not requiring explici t computation of the transitive closure of coreference . The principal conceptual differenc e is that we have moved from a syntactic scoring model based on following coreferenc e links to an approach defined by the model theory of those… CONTINUE READING
