The five technical working papers compose this document which appears in two volumes were prepared as part of the Dialogue Modeling Project at ISI. Though diverse in scope, all are related to the problem of creating a valid process model of human communication in dialogue. In Volume I both papers are on reference as a phenomenon in text. The first surveys reference identification and resolution methods in various existing natural language processors. The other paper explores the broader problem of reference, focusing on text reference and propositional reference. It develops problems and proposals for defining these categories of reference phenomena and for detecting instances of them.
