This paper aims at presenting a study of anaphora and cataphora phenomena in Sanskrit based on
Pacatantra and their mechanical resolution. The scope of anaphors is limited to lexical anaphors
(reflexives and reciprocals) in this study. The paper examines the structure of anaphor usage,
their linguistic contribution and conditions when they are used. On the basis of this study we
formulate an algorithm to resolve anaphors and cataphors automatically present in the text. The
resolution would be done using POS tagged text of the language. The process of anaphora
resolution would consist of three main steps: identification of the anaphors/cataphors, location of
the candidates for their antecedents and matching the appropriate antecedent(s) from the set of
candidates. The system will take as input tagged Sanskrit text and will produce an output with
anaphors and their antecedents paired.
