Un annotateur automatique d’expressions temporelles du français et son évaluation sur le TimeBank du français
André Bittar, Caroline Hagege
In this article, we present a tool that extracts and normalises a subset of temporal expressions in
French. This tool is being developed and used in the ANR (French National Research Agency)
project Chronolines, applied to a corpus of provided by the Agence France Presse. The aim of
the project is to semi-automatically construct event chronologies from this corpus. To do this,
a detailed analysis of the temporal information conveyed by texts, is required. The system we
present here is the first version of a temporal annotator that we have developed for French. We
describe it in this article and present the results of an evaluation.
