Semantic information is one of the indispensable ingredients that are necessary to raise the performance of anaphora resolution – both for pronominal anaphors and for anaphoric definite descriptions – beyond the baseline level. In contrast to hard criteria such as binding and agreement constraints, however, the question of semantic constraints and preferences and its operationalization in a system that performs anaphora resolution, is more complex and a larger variety of solutions can be found… 
Enriching Basque Coreference Resolution System using Semantic Knowledge sources
A Basque coreference resolution system enriched with semantic knowledge is presented and an error analysis carried out revealed the deficiencies that the system had in resolving coreference cases in which semantic or world knowledge is needed.
Annotating anaphoric phenomena in situated dialogue
In recent years several corpora have been developed for vision and language tasks. With this paper, we intend to start a discussion on the annotation of referential phenomena in situated dialogue. We
A Brief Survey and Comparative Study of Recent Development of Pronoun Coreference Resolution in English
This survey focuses on recent progress on hard pronoun coreference resolution problems and conducts extensive experiments to show that even though current models are achieving good performance on the standard evaluation set, they are still not ready to be used in real applications.
EUSKOR: End-to-end coreference resolution system for Basque
The process of adapting the Stanford Coreference resolution module to the Basque language, taking into account the characteristics of the language, can benefit and facilitate other languages with similar characteristics in the implementation of their coreference resolution systems.
Foisonnement nominal et coréférence dans le texte spécialisé
Comparé au roman et au récit de voyage littéraire, l’écrit soigné en langue spécialisée se caractérise généralement par une plus grande proportion de substantifs, d’adjectifs et de prépositions, au
Automatyczne wykrywanie nominalnych zależności referencyjnych w polskich tekstach współczesnych
Autor przedstawia propozycję taksonomii relacji tego rodzaju i wykorzystuje ją w procesie budowy reprezentatywnego, ręcznie anotowanego korpusu zależności referencyjnych.


Using LSA for Pronominal Anaphora Resolution
Latent Semantic Analysis can be used to rank potential antecedents according to how well they fit in the pronoun's context, and the initial results of incorporating LSA into a pronominal anaphora resolution algorithm are encouraging.
Using the Web for Nominal Anaphora Resolution
Instead of using handcrafted lexical resources, this work searches the Web with shallow patterns which can be predetermined for the type of anaphoric phenomenon, and achieves state-ofthe-art results.
Shallow Semantics for Coreference Resolution
Experiments on the ACE data sets indicate that the addition of these new semantic features to a coreference system employing a fairly standard feature set significantly improves its performance.
Syntax and lexical statistics in Anaphora
We describe a syntactically based salience algorithm for pronominal anaphora resolution and a procedure for reevaluating the decisions of the algorithm on the basis of statistically modeled lexical
Resolving bridging references in unrestricted text
The latest version of this system, which handles some types of bridging references, uses WordNet as a source of lexical knowledge, and achieves a recall of 65% is presented.
Text and Knowledge Mining for Coreference Resolution
A knowledge minimalist methodology of mining coreference rules from annotated text corpora, which is a form of knowledge required by coreference, is presented and easily retrieved from WordNet.
Associative Anaphora Resolution: A Web-Based Approach
We present a novel approach to solving definite descriptions in unrestricted text based on searching the web for a particular type of lexico-syntactic patterns. Using statistics on these patterns, we
Using Word Similarity Lists for Resolving Indirect Anaphora
This work applied an automatic lexical acquisition technique over parsed texts to identify semantically similar words and made use of this lexical knowledge to resolve coreferent definite descriptions where the head-noun of the anaphor is different from the head of its antecedent, which is called indirect anaphora.
A Constraint-based Approach to Noun Phrase Coreference Resolution in German Newspaper Text
This paper investigates the usefulness of a wide range of features for their usefulness in the resolution of nominal coreference, and presents a state of the art system based on such constraints and weights estimated with a maximum entropy model.
The (Non)Utility of Predicate-Argument Frequencies for Pronoun Interpretation
This work concludes that predicate-argument statistics mined from naturally-occurring data could provide a useful approximation to such knowledge, but offers little or no predictive information above that provided by morphosyntax.
