Longer version of the original paper.

Although considerable work on named-entity recognition for few major languages exists, research on this topic in the context of Slavonic languages has been almost neglected. This paper presents a rule-based named-entity recognition system for Polish built on top of SProUT, a novel multi-lingual NLP platform. We pinpoint the encountered difficulties and present some promising evaluation results.
