In these days, we are witnessing a growing trend of exploiting lightweight linguistic analysis for converting of the vast amount of raw textual data into structured knowledge. Although a considerable number of monolingual and task-oriented NLP systems have been presented, relatively few general-purpose architectures exist, e.g., GATE  or ELLOGON .
