In: Proceedings of IESL. IESL Conference, 2003.


In this paper we present on-going work on the design of the underlying linguistic components of an IE system in order to cope with a large variety of languages. We focus here on the definition of a lattice that encodes morphological properties in a multilingual setting, and which is supporting efficient morphological disambiguation and agreement checking for various languages, including German, Spanish, English, Bulgarian, Serbian, Croatian, Slovenian and Romanian.
