This paper presents a French corpus annotated for multiword expressions (MWEs) with adverbial function. This corpus is designed for investigation on information retrieval and extraction, as well as on deep and shallow syntactic parsing. We delimit which kind of MWEs we annotated, we describe the resources and methods we used for the annotation, and we(More)
In this article we describe the joint effort of experts in linguistics, information extraction and risk assessment to integrate EventSpotter, an automatic event extraction engine, into ADAC, an automated early warning system. By detecting as early as possible weak signals of emerging risks ADAC provides a dynamic synthetic picture of situations involving(More)
The recognition and classification of Named Entities (NER) are regarded as an important component for many Natural Language Processing (NLP) applications. The classification is usually made by taking into account the immediate context in which the NE appears. In some cases, this immediate context does not allow getting the right classification. We show in(More)
Lexicon-Grammar tables are a very rich syntactic lexicon for the French language. This linguistic database is nevertheless not directly suitable for use by computer programs, as it is incomplete and lacks consistency. Tables are defined on the basis of features which are not explicitly recorded in the lexicon. These features are only described in(More)
This paper presents work on extending the adverbial entries of LGLex, a NLP oriented syntactic resource for French. Adverbs were extracted from the Lexicon-Grammar tables of both simple adverbs ending in –ment „–ly‟ (Molinier and Levrier, 2000) and compound adverbs (Gross, 1986; 1990). This work relies on the exploitation of fine-grained linguistic(More)

We present an extension of the adverbial entries of the French morphological lexicon DELA (Dictionnaires Electroniques du LADL / LADL electronic dictionaries). Adverbs were extracted from LGLex, a NLP-oriented syntactic resource for French, which in its turn contains all adverbs extracted from the Lexicon-Grammar tables of both simple adverbs ending in(More)
In the field of corpus annotation, it is common to annotate text multiple times and then adjudicate the results. The resulting annotation is generally regarded as more consistent and more accurate than the results of a single pass. However, it is also very expensive to annotate in this way. Given text corpora that are annotated by many different research(More)
