Hi there, at the old forum you answered a question on this topic with the code below, so my question is, where do I get the analyzer.php file, or.... can you share the code of your demo version....
I tried this code already unsuccessfully though..



// Adjust this path to your local FreeLing installation
$FL_DIR = "/usr/local";

I'm trying to train a NER model using the train-nerc directory and the demo data that exist in train-nerc/corpus
I'm following the scripts, and encountered several problems:
1. corpus/bin/ (is being called from prepare-corpus) - is stuck inside the second loop, looks like the achieved ratio doesn't achieve the goal ratio - i suspect that it is due to the small volume of the demo set. Should it work fine and something else is wrong on my side?

pt NER extraction

Hello Freeling friends, i have a little problem running NER / NEC.
I'm trying to get detections about persons, organizations, places, dates etc, with a given plain text. As far as i know the text must be sentence splited (?not sure) and tokenized (one word per line), however i'm trying to run analyze with a plain text that have nouns, places, organizations etc, and see whats the output, but i got an error on np.dat file, maybe i'm calling it wrongly.
The config file has NER and NEC enabled:

Hello Lluis. I'm working on an integration between KNIME and Freeling. I believe this one can be a powerful combination, and look forward to make them talk as smoothly as possible.

As such, I've been trying a couple of approaches on a first stage which I would like to comment. I will really appreciate your feedback:

Basic NER Ignore list

Submitted by lgarcias on Thu, 02/16/2017 - 09:31

I am using the basic NER module in Spanish and I have added some words to the Ignore list followed by 0/1 as specified in the user manual. Still when running it this list is being ignored by the program and the items in them appear tagged as NEs.
I have specified in the .cfg that I am using the basic NER. I have also tried both putting a space or a tab between the words and the 0/1 in case that was the problem (it is not specified in the manual), but it is still not working.
Has anybody else had this problem? What can I be doing wrong?

Thank you in advance.

galician tagset

I'm ussing the FreeLing 4.0 for the galician language.

If we analyze the sentence:

Cando varrín contigo, xa varrera a escaleira e varría durmido

we observe that there is no explanation for the second M in the tag for the varrera verb.

6 varrera varrer VMIM1S0 VMI pos=verb|type=main|mood=indicative|person=1|num=singular - - - - - - -
