Abstract

Proper name recognition is a subtask of Name Entity Recognition in Message Understanding Conference. For our corpus annotation proper name recognition is a crucial task since proper names appear approximately in more than 50% of total sentences of the electronic texts that we collected for such purpose. Our work is focused on composite proper names (names with coordinated constituents, names with several prepositional phrases, and names of songs, books, movies, etc.) We describe a method based on heterogeneous knowledge and simple resources, and the preliminary obtained results.
