Discourse references, notably coreference and bridging, play an important role in many text understanding applications, but their impact on textual entailment is yet to be systematically understood. On the ba- sis of an in-depth analysis of entailment instances, we argue that discourse refer- ences have the potential of substantially improving textual entailment recognition, and identify a number of research direc- tions towards this goal.
