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).
