In: Proceedings of the Workshop on Named-Entity Recognition for NLP Applications held in conjunction with the 1st International Joint Conference on NLP, March 2004. Workshop on Named-Entity Recognition for NLP Applications, Sanya, Hainan Island, China, 2004.


Although considerable work on named-entity recognition for English and few other major languages exists, research on this topic with regard to Slavonic lan-guages has been almost neglected. In this paper, we present an attempt towards con-structing a named-entity recognition sys-tem for Polish on top of SProUT, a novel multi-lingual NLP platform, we discuss the encountered difficulties, and present preliminary evaluation results.
