Extending Bart to Provide a Coreference Resolution System for German

We present a flexible toolkit-based approach to automatic coreference resolution on German text. We start with our previous work aimed at reimplementing the system from Soon et al. (2001) for English, and extend it to duplicate a version of the state-of-the-art proposal from Klenner and Ailloud (2009). Evaluation performed on a benchmarking dataset, namely the TueBa-D/Z corpus (Hinrichs et al., 2005b), shows that machine learning based coreference resolution can be robustly performed in a language other than English
