Coreference Resolution Dataset for Croatian

Version: 1.0
Release date: September 4, 2015

1 Description

Coreference resolution is the task of identifying in text different mentions of the same real-world entity. We make available a set of news stories from Croatian newline "Vjesnik", manually annotated with coreference relations between entity mentions. The published dataset is the test set that we used for evaluating the performance of the constrained mention-pair model for coreference resolution for Croatian, published in the following paper:
