  author={Andrew Borthwick and John Sterling and Eugene Agichtein and Ralph Grishman},
This paper describes a novel statistical namedentity (i.e. "proper name") recognition system built around a maximum entity framework. By working v,ithin the framework of maximum entropy theory and utilizing a flexible object-based architecture, the system is able to make use of an extraordinarily diverse range of knowledge sources in making its tagging decisions.
