The paper aims at a deeper understanding of sev- eral well-known algorithms and proposes ways to optimize them. It describes and discusses factors and strategies of factor interaction used in the algo- rithms. The factors used in the algorithms and the algorithms themselves are evaluated on a German corpus annotated with syntactic and coreference in- formation (Negra) (Skut et al. , 1997). A common format for pronoun resolution algorithms with sev- eral open parameters is proposed, and the parameter settings optimal on the evaluation data are given.
