This paper takes a discourse-oriented per- spective for disambiguating common and proper noun mentions with respect to Wikipedia. Our novel approach mod- els the relationship between disambigua- tion and aspects of cohesion using Markov Logic Networks with latent variables. Considering cohesive aspects consistently improves the disambiguation results on various commonly used data sets.
