Application of vector resemblance degree in Chinese anaphora resolution
Focused on pronominal and demonstrative pronominal anaphora, the paper presents arithmetic of anaphora resolution based on vector resemblance. Vector similarity is used to measure the existence of the co-reference between anaphor and antecedent. Firstly, generate a set of candidate antecedents according to some rules; then compute the resemblance between anaphor and antecedent; finally select an optimal antecedent as the result of anaphora resolution. The method has been implemented and tested, and the result shows that the proposed arithmetic is promising.
