This article describes an ongoing work - an experiment on anaphora resolution in Estonian newspaper texts using Constraint Grammar (CG) rules. The personal, demonstrative and relative pronouns are chosen for resolution at the first stage of the research. As morphological information and syntactic relations play an important role in identifying anaphoric relations, syntactically analyzed text is used as an input for the CG rules.
