In this paper, a method to solve pronominal anaphora using full parsing is presented. This approach applies, like other traditional approaches do, a set of constraints and preferences to the list of candidates previously appeared in the text. In our approach, for Spanish, semantic criteria for the resolution process is also added. Furthermore, there have been defined some co-position preferences based on the study of the Solution Searching Space. The preliminary results obtained from the evaluation of this method have given an interesting success rate of 79.3% correctly resolved pronouns.
