Coreference Task Definition


The coreference judgments should be based on the intelligent reader's knowledge of the world resulting from his or her best understanding of the text. It should not be based on a theory of the structure of the text, or on a linguistic theory of how NPs are resolved, or on estimates of what the typical NLP system could do. This means that some relations will be impossible for current NLP systems to recover, but this is why the task will push the technology. The annotators should assume that they are typical intelligent readers.
