Semantic Approach to Identity in Coreference Resolution Task
- 823 Downloads
It has been recently discussed in linguistics that the notion of identity in the task of coreference resolution is of continuous nature, ranging from “complete” identity to non-identity. The current paper confronts this idea with experimental data for Polish, resulting in a new approach to the notion of identity. It extends the definition of coreference with speaker/recipient relation, believed to be valid for all languages, and explains the near-identity with lexical and conceptual means. The theory is supported with Polish-English examples presenting difficulties in coreference interpretation.
