In this paper, we present a machine learn- ing approach to the identification and reso- lution of Chinese anaphoric zero pronouns. We perform both identification and resolu- tion automatically, with two sets of easily computable features. Experimental results show that our proposed learning approach achieves anaphoric zero pronoun resolution accuracy comparable to a previous state-of- the-art, heuristic rule-based approach. To our knowledge, our work is the first to per- form both identification and resolution of Chinese anaphoric zero pronouns using a machine learning approach.
