A rule based Pronoun Resolution System for French
The paper describes a robust pronoun resolution system for French. This system implements a strategy
similar to the one used in other implemented systems such as the ones developed by Lappin and Leass
(1994) or Mitkov (1998). It also obtains similar results (74,8% of in-scope pronouns, out of 360, in an unseen
corpus are correctly interpreted). We give an overview of the sytem (general strategy and implementation) and
present the global results. In the last section, we discuss more specific results which cinfirm one of Baldwin's
(1995) hypotheses: the preference for subject tends to be stronger in inter-sentence anaphora than in intra-
