Most natural languages offer the possibility to use anaphora. An anaphor is a (usually short) reference to an entity which was introduced in a previous part of the text and was called an antecedent. Research in both linguistics as computational linguistics has shown that there are several constraints that limit the possible antecedents for a certain anaphor. In our research we would like to see what the influence is of cognitive capacities that are necessary for these constraints on the anaphora in language that originates.
