We present a machine learning frame- work for resolving other-anaphora. Be- sides morpho-syntactic, recency, and se- mantic features based on existing lexi- cal knowledge resources, our algorithm obtains additional semantic knowledge from the Web. We search the Web via lexico-syntactic patterns that are specific to other-anaphors. Incorporating this in- novative feature leads to an 11.4 percent- age point improvement in the classifier’s BY-measure (25% improvement relative to results without this feature).
