A Hybrid System for Named Entity Metonymy Resolution
Caroline Brun, Maud Ehrmann, Guillaume Jacquet
This paper is an extended version of (Brun et al., 2007) describing our participation to the Metonymy Resolution (task #8) at SemEval 2007. In order to perform Named Entity metonymy resolution on location names and company names, as required for this task, we developed a hybrid system based on the use of a robust parser that extracts deep syntactic relations combined with a non supervised distributional approach, also relying on the relations extracted by the parser.
