A New, Fully Automatic Version of Mitkov's Knowledge-Poor Pronoun Resolution Method

By Ruslan Mitkov, Richard Evans and Constantin Orasan


This paper describes a new, advanced and completely revamped version of Mitkov's knowledge-poor approach to pronoun resolution. In contrast to most anaphora resolution approaches, the new system, referred to as MARS, operates in fully automatic mode. It benefits from purpose-built programs for identifying occurrences of non-nominal anaphora (including pleonastic pronouns) and for recognition of animacy, and employs genetic algorithms to achieve optimal performance. The paper features extensive evaluation and discusses important evaluation issues in anaphora resolution
