     7== State of the Art ==
     9Anaphora resolution (or pronoun resolution) is the problem of resolving references to earlier or later items in the discourse. [[BR]]
     10Main approaches:
     111. Knowledge-rich approaches:
     12     1. Syntax-based approaches
     13     2. Discourse-Based Approaches
     14     3. Hybrid Approaches
     15     4. Corpus based Approaches
     161. Knowledge-poor Approaches:
     17     1. Machine learning techniques

     27== Practical Session ==
     29Student has to understand Hobbs' definition of anaphora resolution and according to it implement the main function of Hobbs' algorithm in proposed python script that contains all necessary functions. According to real data (syntactic trees) student tests his program and evaluate it. At the and of the session student has to hand the results to prove completing the task. If the student finishes early the additional task is to find sentence structures that are not covered by Hobbs' algorithm.
     31The task:
     32 1. download script with data is available [[|here]]
     33 1. understand Hobbs' definition of anaphora resolution and replace 'XXX' function call with correct one
     34 1. try to find senteces that can not be resolved by Hobbs' algorithm. You
     35 can use [ the Stanford parser]
     36 to test new sentences - copy the tree to one line and remove the ROOT tag.

     39Important commands (aisa):
     40 1. python with nltk (version 3.0.2.): /home/xmedved1/nlp/python-env/bin/python
     41 1. copy /home/xmedved1/nltk_data/ to your home directory
     42 1. execute Hobbs script: /home/xmedved1/nlp/python-env/bin/python ./ demosents.txt He
