Anaphoric reference is an important linguistic phe- nomenon to understand the discourse structure and content. In Chinese natural language processing, there are both the problems of choosing and resolv- ing anaphora. In Mandarin Chinese, several linguists have attempted to propose criteria to ezplain the phe- nomenon of anaphora but with controversial results. On the other hand, search-based computational tech- niques for resolving anaphora are neither the best way to resolve Chinese anaphora nor to facilitate choosing anaphora. Thus, to facilitate both choosing and resolv- ing anaphora with accuracy and efficiency, we propose a case-based learning model G-UNIMEM to automat- ically acquire anaphorie regularity from a sample set of training sentences i, which are annotated with a list of fe...
