What is Anaphora Resolution?

Anaphora Resolution is the problem of resolving references to earlier items in discourse.

Anaphor: A linguistic unit that refers to an earlier linguistic unit in discourse.
Antecedent: The linguistic unit that the anaphor refers to.

For example,

Jessica is in the sixth grade and this is her father.

Here, "her" is the anaphor, and its antecedent is "Jessica".
