Abstract

Time is a critical part of language. Without the ability to express it, we cannot plan, tell stories or discuss change.

Keywords

Temporal Information Temporal Expression Time Expression Event Recognition Name Entity Recognition 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
