Retrieving Knowledge for a Lexical Database from Proper Noun Entries in Collins English Dictionary

Muhammad Asadur Rahman and Martha Evens

This paper presents our efforts to retrieve proper name information from a machine readable dictionary. We explain the problem in brief and then we discuss related work that other researchers have attempted in this area. We describe the embedded knowledge that one can find in the Collins English Dictionary (CED). Finally we present our ideas about how to extract this knowledge and how we plan to store it in a lexical database of proper names.
