Abstract

Semantic argument structures are often incomplete in that core arguments are not locally instantiated. However, many of these implicit arguments can be linked to referents in the wider context. In this paper we explore a number of linguistically motivated strategies for identifying and resolving such null instantiations (NIs). We show that a more sophisticated model for identifying definite NIs can lead to noticeable performance gains over the state-ofthe- art for NI resolution.
