Abstract

We introduce Sapiens, a platform for extracting quotations from news wires, associated with their author and context. The originality of Sapiens is that it relies on a deep linguistic processing chain, which allows for extracting quotations with a wide coverage and an extended definition, including quotations which are only partially quotes-delimited verbatim transcripts. We describe the architecture of Sapiens and how it was applied to process a corpus of French news wires from the AFP news agency.
