Fine-grained Arabic Named Entity Corpora

Fine-grained Arabic Named Entity Corpora

About

The gold-standard and automatically-developed fine-grained Arabic named entity corpora are resources created by annotating Named Entities into 50 fine-grained classes.

The annotation uses two-levels taxonomy in which an entity has been annotated into coarse- and fine-grained classes.

Manually gold-standard:

1) WikiFANE_Gold: Gold standard Wikipedia-based Fine-grained Arabic Named Entity Corpus, ~500K tokens

2) NewsFANE_Gold: Gold standard Newswire-based Fine-grained Arabic Named Entity Corpus, ~170K tokens.

Those corpora have been manually annotated from the Arabic Wikipedia and Newswire sources respectively.

Mirror download via sourceforge.net

To use the gold-standard corpora, please cite (Alotaibi and Lee, 2014) COLING 2014's paper.

Automatically-developed:

1) WikiFANE_Whole: All sentences of the Arabic Wikipedia articles were retrieved to compile to corpus. ~2M tokens.

2) WikiFANE_Selective: Sentences which have at least one NE phrase were retrieved to compile the corpus. ~2M tokens.
