TYTUŁ:     IE Grammars for Person and Institution Names in Polish


The subject of the talk will be a grammar for recognition of MUC-like
NE types, especially persons and organizations, developed within the
framework of the SProUT system. In this approach, template structures
resemble the Template Element (TE) extraction task (e.g., for persons
the slots are: first name, surname, position, title, sex, etc.). The
rules use an inflectional dictionary of Polish (Morfeusz) and a
lexicon of inflected Polish names.  The IE rules not only recognize
named entities but also try to find their base (nominal) form.
