Dissertation Abstract:

The goal of the research project was to prove that the magnitude of the
increase in recall and precision of named entity recognition justifies a
separate and language specific treatment of each kind of entity in every
domain. The hypotheses that by using Local Grammars, the NER task can be
solved with the additional side benefit of gaining further information
about the named entity from its context, was to either be corroborated or
disproved. The domain and language that was focused on are online business
news written in English.
