L715 Anaphora Resolution
Prerequisite: Some programming experience.
Automatic anaphora resolution has become an important issue for a
variety of NLP applications, including information retrieval,
information extraction, text summarization, as well as dialog and
This seminar will begin with an overview of the semantic and
pragmatic properties of anaphoric expressions. Then, we will focus
on computational approaches to anaphora resolution, including rule-
based, stochastic and machine learning methods. We will also have a
look at relevant psycholinguistic literature and (if students are
interested) at approaches to the generation of referring expressions.
