Therefore anaphors requiring real-world knowledge for their resolution stand the least chance of being resolved successfully. 2 Anaphora resolution in practice The automatic resolution of anaphors consists of the following main stages: (1) identification of anaphors, (2) location of the candidates for antecedents and (3) selection of the antecedent from the set of candidates on the basis of anaphora resolution factors.
