Resolution of NLP Problems in AGIR

The fourth stage of the AGIR's analysis module allows for the resolution of NLP problems. Our present work focuses on the resolution of NLP problems related to pronominal anaphora in the source language so as to translate these anaphoric expressions correctly into the target language. We are only describing the translation of anaphoric, third-person, personal pronouns into the target language. Therefore, we have only focused on the discrepancies between Spanish and English in the treatment of these pronouns. In the next two subsections, we will describe the syntactic discrepancies treated and solved in AGIR (Spanish zero pronouns) and the anaphora resolution module of the system.
