Abstract

Named entities (NE) mentioned in textual databases constitute an important part of their semantics. Lists of those NE are an important knowledge source for diverse tasks. We present a method for NE identification focused on composite proper names (names with coordinated constituents and names with several prepositional phrases.) We describe a method based on heterogeneous knowledge and simple resources, and the preliminary obtained results.
