Matching coreferent named entities with- out prior knowledge requires good similar- ity measures. Soft-TFIDF is a fine-grained measure which performs well in this task. We propose to enhance this kind of met- rics, through a generic model in which measures may be mixed, and show experi- mentally the relevance of this approach.
