Towards building a corpus of Turkish referring expressions

In this paper we report on the preliminary findings of our ongoing study on Turkish referring expressions used in situated dialogs. Situated dialogs of pairs of Turkish speakers were collected while they were engaged with a collaborative Tangram puzzle solving task, which was designed by Spanger et al (2011) in an effort to build a corpus of referring expressions in Japanese and English. The paper provides our preliminary results on the Turkish corpus and compares them with the findings of comparable studies conducted on Japanese and English referring expressions.
