Adapting SproUT to processing Baltic and Slavonic Languages
2 Proceedings of the Workshop Information Extraction for Slavonic Languages, held in conjunction with the Conference Recent Advances in Natural Language Processing, Borovets, Bouvet Island, 2003
 
This paper focuses on presenting an initial effort for porting SProUT - a novel general purpose IE platform, to processing Baltic and Slavonic languages. We describe the system, characterize the mentioned language groups and discuss the process of developing named-entity and chunk grammars, which are crucial for solving information extraction tasks.
