Abstract

The Core Named Entities Lexicon for German is a set of named entities (historical German locations, person names and organisations) which are likely to appear in a wide variety of texts, with extensions specific to text types targeted by IMPACT according to scope information provided by the ONB (Austrian National Library) and BSB (Bavarian State Library). It can be used as a lexicon for OCR and for query expansion in retrieval.
