Figure 1.

Cross-sentence event-argument relation. An example of event-argument relation crossing sentence boundaries. In this figure, an event, “inducible” has “The region” as an Theme. But “The region” is coreferent to “The IRF-2 promoter region” in the forward sentence. So, “The IRF-2 promoter region” is also a Theme of “inducible”.
