Title: A MULTI-AGENT EXTENSION OF DRT.
Authors: N. Francez and J. Berg
PDFLCL9409.pdf
Abstract: This paper introduces MDRT, an extension of DRT to a multi-agent dialogue. The main issue handled is cross-speaker anaphora, whereby one speaker refers anaphorically to a discourse entity introduced by another speaker. We present a representation of multi-speaker discourses that allows a non-degenerate solution to the commitment problem: to what conditions about a discourse entity is a speaker committed when using cross-speaker anaphora?
