Background: Like many other real world applications, the machine learning system of anaphora resolution also struggles with skewed data. The problem of imbalanced classes occurs with classification task where there a huge difference exists in the number of instances among the involved classes.Objectives: The proposed framework intends to remove the imbalance first between positive and negative class instances before classifying them by KBUS that makes use of cognitive knowledge about the language and analysis is done at attribute level. Method: Nine pruning rules are crafted by KBUS(KNN Based Under Sampling) for TDIL dataset. Findings: During experimentation, number of positive instances are increased from 5.32% to 43.95%, whereas the number of negative instances are decreased from 94.68% to 56.05%. Loss ratio of positive and negative instance is 1:112. Finally the pruned dataset is classified by a list of classifiers namelyNaïve Bayes, SVM, Random forest, decision tree and k-NN. Novelty: Classifier results are discussed in two perspectives: Firstly the number of input instances and secondly the performance improvement achieved after pruning. It is adduced that pruning shows a remarkable improvement for all the classifiers. The proposed system produced an encouraging result as 78% of f-measure for k-NN and 77% for decision tree. Performance is presented in a comparative manner before and after pruning and the improvement of fmeasureranges from 13% (k-NN) to 41% (Random Forest). Thus this work has come up with a machine learning model to resolve Tamil anaphoric situations effectively in an imbalanced classification environment.
