In this paper, we propose the use of metadata contained in documents to improve corefer- ence resolution. Specifically, we quantify the impact of speaker and turn information on the performance of our coreference system, and show that the metadata can be effectively en- coded as features of a statistical resolution sys- tem, which leads to a statistically significant improvement in performance.
