ROCHA, Marco. A corpus-based approach to anaphora in spoken portuguese. DELTA [online]. 2000, vol.16, n.2, pp.229-261. ISSN 1678-460X.

This paper describes corpus-based research on anaphoric relations in spoken Portuguese, relying on data collected in dialogues recorded in real-life situations. The essential analitycal tool is a corpus annotation which classifies each case of anaphora according to four attributes described in the paper. The research project as a whole is concerned with possible applications in natural language processing, particularly regarding natural language interfaces to databases.

Keywords : Anaphora; Corpus annotation; Corpus linguistics; Natural language processing.
