Teaching computers to solve language problems is one of the major challengesof natural language processing. There is a large amount of interesting researchdevoted to this field. This book fills an existing gap in the literature with anup-to-date survey of the field, including the author's own contributions.A number of different fields overlap in anaphora resolution - computationallinguistics, natural language processing (NLP), grammar, semantics, pragmatics,discourse analysis and artificial intelligence. This book begins by introducingbasic notions and terminology, moving onto early research methods andapproaches, recent developments and applications, and future directions.It addresses various issues related to the practical implementation of anaphorasystems, such as rules employed, algorithms implemented or evaluationtechniques used. This is an ideal reference book for students and researchersin this particular area of computational linguistics.Since anaphora resolution is vital for the development of any practical NLPsystem, the book will be of interest to readers from both academia andindustry.
