Revisiting Selectional Preferences for Coreference Resolution

Selectional preferences have long been claimed to be essential for coreference resolution. However, they are mainly modeled only implicitly by current coreference resolvers. We propose a dependency-based embedding model of selectional preferences which allows fine-grained compatibility judgments with high coverage. We show that the incorporation of our model improves coreference resolution performance on the CoNLL dataset, matching the state-of-the-art results of a more complex system. However, it comes with a cost that makes it debatable how worthwhile such improvements are.
