A consistent text contains rich inforlnation for resolv- ing mnbiguities within its sentences. Even simple syn- tactic information such as word occurrence and col- location patterns, which can be extra(:ted fi'om the text without deep discourse analysis, lint)roves the accuracy of sentence analysis. Pronoml resolution is a typical proceeding that utilizes this information. Through the use of this inforlnation, along with in- formation on the syntactic position of each candidate, 93.8% of pronoun references were resolved correctly in an experiment on computer mammls.
