In order to determine which criteria stated in the literature were the most relevant, we selected seven criteria that satisfy two conditions: first, they are some of the most widely used by other authors, and second, it is possible to search for them in the AnCora-ES corpus without suffering data sparseness. These criteria and the authors who propose them are shown schematically in Table 2.
