JRE Crashing when using Freeling

Submitted by Ayto on Mon, 08/16/2021 - 13:56

Hello everyone, hope you're well.

I am using the Freeling library for my Master's Degree thesis on Java, so using the JFreeling API.
Whilst it is working perfectly well on its own, I need to combine it with the ExtJWNL library to extract hyponyms and other semantic relationships.
Since introducing the JWNL library, a SIGSEGV error has been thrown at me every time:

Adding new named entities to Freeling

Submitted by UDL on Sat, 01/23/2021 - 01:23

I've been using Freeling for a while and it seems like a great project. What I have used it the most for is to work with named entities.

Submitted by gabriela123 on Fri, 06/05/2020 - 19:25

I am using Freeling 4.1 in Windows environment that I installed from scratch with python 3 , for Portuguese language. I would like to know how can I change the language in from English to Portuguese without needing “quantities.dat” because that function does not exist in the “pt” folder and when I remove it the rest of the code doesn’t work because it doesn’t have the needed output of “quantites.dat”.

Different tag results between two very similar sentences

Hello. I'm using freeling in python to analyze a set of newspaper articles in Spanish. I've updated the location gazetteers with a bunch of locations and I've removed all locations from other gazetteers (i.e. organization) because it would return some location as ORG and all I need are locations. I'm analyzing my text with tokenizer, splitter, ner-ab-rich.dat NER and finally nec-ab-rich.dat NEC (all with the default configuration, I haven't changed them). I'm having a problem with the two following sentences:
