This paper presents a novel deterministic algorithm for implicit Semantic Role La- beling. The system exploits a very sim- ple but relevant discursive property, the ar- gument coherence over different instances of a predicate. The algorithm solves the implicit arguments sequentially, exploit- ing not only explicit but also the implicit arguments previously solved. In addition, we empirically demonstrate that the algo- rithm obtains very competitive and robust performances with respect to supervised approaches that require large amounts of costly training data.
