Modelling features relevant for discourse deixis resolution in dialogue
- Discourse deixis mention identification: What distinguishes discourse deixis and basic anaphora anaphors? What role does the semantics of the predicate play? Obviously, the identification of the markable as a discourse deixis one also depends on the previous context (antecedent) – can we model the context as a feature? And how to attend to the most relevant parts of it?
- Discourse deixis mention resolution: How do humans find antecedents for discourse deixis anaphors? If the antecedent consists of several sentences/utterances, what exactly links them together? Why does this piece of discourse stand out? How important are discourse relations? How can features relevant for discourse deixis resolution be modelled? Some statistics of potential findings would also be beneficial.
- Are there any crucial differences between discourse deixis resolution in text and dialogue?
- Can we improve/extend existing model(s) for discourse deixis resolution by adding the features discussed above?
