Package Description

Finds named entities in text.

Literary texts are filled with names of people and places. MorphAdorner includes a simple name recognizer for extracting names to allow building lists of characters and geographical settings. MorphAdorner uses simple rule-based pattern recognition methods along with proper name word lists and gazeteers to locate probable names in a text.

All MorphAdorner name recognizers must implement the NameRecognizer interface. The NameRecognizerFactory provides the mechanism for instantiating a default or specified instance of a name recognizer implementation. You may extend the AbstractNameRecognizer to create a new name recognizer.
