Mind adding some more explanations? Not all will be able to understand your question as is. Adding details/context would help. – Alenanno Oct 30 '12 at 9:50
Yeah, if somebody told you Language Layers M through P were dealing with co-reference resolution, how much would that help? – jlawler Oct 30 '12 at 14:11
@jlawler Were you replying to me? – Alenanno Oct 30 '12 at 21:41
@jlawler: Gotta love them LLs! (I think he means something like how anaphora works, so that would be pragmatics?) @ ARZ: I'm afraid the problem cannot be solved until we manage to build an artificial intelligence many levels higher in complexity than what current science allows us. Some simple cases in an extremely limiting context may be resolved automatically. You might want to browse around Wikipedia a bit, starting here. – Cerberus Oct 30 '12 at 22:26
