This paper deals with error analysis and their influence in comparative and qualitative evaluation of systems performing anaphora resolution. It presents a corpus-based analysis of errors reported by four anaphora resolution systems, leading to an investigation of the type and source of errors; as a direct application of the investigation's results, a simple probabilistic hybrid method is described, that takes advantage of the strong points of each of the methods analysed, while trying to avoid their weak points.
