Exploring Lexicalized Features for Coreference Resolution

Björkelund, Anders LU and Nugues, Pierre LU orcid (2011) The 15th Conference on Computational Natural Language Learning (CoNLL-2011): Shared Task p.45-50
Abstract
In this paper, we describe a coreference solver based on the extensive use of lexical features and features extracted from dependency graphs of the sentences. The solver uses Soon et al. (2001)'s classical resolution algorithm based on a pairwise classification of the mentions.



We applied this solver to the closed track of the CoNLL 2011 shared task (Pradhan et al., 2011). We carried out a systematic optimization of the feature set using cross-validation that led us to retain 24 features. Using this set, we reached a MUC score of 58.61 on the test set of the shared task. We analyzed the impact of the features on the development set and we show the importance of lexicalization as well as of properties related to... (More)
