Virtually all the commonly-used evaluation metrics for entity coreference resolution are linguistically agnostic, treating the mentions to be clustered as generic rather than linguistic objects. We argue that the performance of an entity coreference resolver cannot be accurately reflected when it is evaluated using linguistically agnostic metrics. Consequently, we propose a framework for incorporating linguistic awareness into commonly-used coreference evaluation metrics.
