This paper describes ongoing work on the evaluation of the NLP components of the core engine of smes (Saarbrücker Message Extraction System), which consists of a tokenizer, an efficient and robust German morphology, a part-of-speech (POS) tagger, a shallow parsing module, a linguistic knowledge base and an output construction component. Currently the morphology, the tagger and a parsing module (NP grammar) are under evaluation, at distinct degrees of progress. We present the methodology used and the results obtained so far.
