Semantics Inside and Outside the Clause [pdf]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
This paper reports on a first-pass annotation exercise and analysis of a corpus of examples of other-NPs -- that is, NPs modified by the comparative <I>other</I>, as in <I>other European steelmakers</I>. Such NPs have an anaphoric component that must be resolved -- ``other steelmakers than which ones?''. Statistical data derived from this study have uncovered significant patterns that can be used to constrain search space and determine the correct antecedents of other-NPs. Developing efficient resolution algorithms for comparative anaphoric expressions is the applied goal of this project.
