An Evaluation of Inter-Annotator Agreement in the Observation of Anaphoric and Referential Relations

François Trouilleux, Gabriel Bès, Eric Gaussier
When proposing a description of the data he observes, the linguist must make sure that his observations may be also regularly made by other persons. In this paper, we introduce a typology of anaphoric and referential relations and an experiment which aims at assessing that this typology is operational. Given three newspaper articles, five students were asked to identify anaphoric and/or referential relations between expressions and referents. This inter-subjectivity test confirms results already obtained: coreference is an operational notion, but the perspicuity of other relations is not obvious.
