I'm in need of a freely available corpus of English language (which may contain text of any genre) but has to be annotated anaphoriacally i-e. Anaphora resolution should have been performed already.

Based on my googling I came up with some results such as BASHI and ARRAU but ARRAU is a paid resource. Any relevant help / resources / links would be much appreciated.

This one was just released a couple months ago and is available for download. https://github.com/synapse-developpement/Discovery

If the anaphoric references are not to your liking, run the Hugging Face Neural CoRef classifier over the dataset. https://huggingface.co/coref/

  • I think I've found exactly what I was looking for. Name of that resource is Phrase Detectives Corpus. It has two versions and freely available. Commented Jun 1, 2019 at 18:05
