Abstract:

In this paper, we outline an interlingual-based procedure for resolving reference and suggest a practical approach to implementing it. We assume a two-stage language analysis system. First, a syntactic analysis of an input text results in a functional structure in which certain cases of pronominal reference are resolved. Second, the f-structure is mapped onto an interlingual representation. As part of this mapping, the reference of tile various f-structure elements is resolved resulting in the addition of information to certain existing IL objects coreference or in the creation of new IL objects which are added to the domain of discourse initial reference.
