Venue Annual Meeting of the Association of Computational Linguistics

We propose an Mgorithm to resolve anaphors, tackling mainly the problem of intrasentential antecedents. We base our methodology on the fact that such an- tecedents are likely to occur in embedded sentences. Sidner's focusing mechanism is used as the basic algorithm in a more com- plete approach. The proposed algorithm has been tested and implemented as a part of a conceptual analyser, mainly to pro- cess pronouns. Details of an evaluation are given.
