This paper presents the first steps in the development of a Basque coreference resolution system. We propose a mention detector system based on a linguistic study of the nature of mentions. The system identifies mentions that are potential candidates to be part of coreference chains in Basque written texts. The mention detector is rule-based and has been implemented using finite state technology. It achieves a F-measure of 77.58% under the Exact Matching protocol and of 82.81% under Lenient Matching.
