Where’s My Head? Definition, Dataset and Models for Numeric Fused-Heads Identification and Resolution
Fused Head constructions are noun phrases in which the head noun is missing and is said to be “fused” with its dependent modifier.

but pose a challenge for computational models.
, in the sentence: "I bought 5 apples but got only 4."
, 4 is a Fused-Head, and the missing head is apples
which appear earlier in the sentence.
Our system identifies and attempts to resolve these cases.
