Digging for names in the mountains: Combined person name recognition and reference resolution for German alpine texts


Ebling, S; Sennrich, R; Klaper, D; Volk, M (2011). Digging for names in the mountains: Combined person name recognition and reference resolution for German alpine texts. In: 5th Language & Technology Conference, Poznan, Poland, 25 November 2011 - 27 November 2011.

Abstract

In this paper we introduce a module that combines person name recognition and reference resolution for German. Our data consisted of a corpus of Alpine texts. This text type poses special challenges because of a multitude of toponyms, some of which interfere with person names. Our reference resolution algorithm outputs person entities based on their last names and first names along with their associated features (jobs, addresses, academic titles).

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
