This paper argues for the necessity of zero pronoun annotations in Korean treebanks and provides an annotation scheme that can be used to de- velop a gold standard for testing different anaphor resolution algorithms. Rele- vant issues of pronoun annotation will be discussed by comparing the Penn Ko- rean Treebank with zero pronoun mark-up and the newly developing Sejong Teebank without zero pronoun mark-up. In addition to supportive evidence for zero marking, necessary morphosyntactic and semantic features will be sug- gested for zero annotation in Korean treebanks.
