The experiments described here have been done in connection with the LS-GRAM project, which is concerned with the develop- ment of large scale grammars and thus fore- seen the coverage of "real life texts". But in order to deal with such texts, it is also nec- essary to process linguistic units which are larger than sentences. The resolution of cross- sentential anaphora is one of the problems we have to deal with, when we switch towards the analysis of such larger linguistic units. In order to propose an analysis of the cross- sentential anaphora, one has to be able to re- fer back to an antecedent, which is to be found in a preceding sentence. This will be done on the basis of an information-passing frame- work. Using also the simple unification tech- nique a resolution of the pronoun ca...
