PREFERRED TERM
Co-reference Resolution
DEFINITION
  • The process/task of determining all linguistic expressions that refer to the same entity in a certain text.

ALTERNATIVE LABEL
  • Anaphora Resolution

  • Coreference Resolution

SCOPE NOTE
  • Although "anaphora" is on theoretical grounds different from "co-reference" (cf. http://linguistics.stackexchange.com/questions/11506/what-is-the-difference-between-coreference-resolution-and-anaphora-resolution for a discussion on the topic), for OpenMinTeD purposes, the terms "co-reference resolution" and "anaphora resolution" are semantically close enough to be used as synonyms.
