Names, People, and Places

1. What's in a name?

  • We've already met <name> and <rs> for any form of name or referring string.
  • The namesdates module also provides specialisations of these: <persName>, <placeName>, and <orgName>
  • Each can be further decomposed
  • They can also be associated with a named entity
  • (Names are also entities)
