Named Entity or Entity Name?

08131.SchulzStefan.ExtAbstract.1521.pdf (0.01 MB)


The expression "named entity" is very fuzzy and its definitions partly contradictory. Semantic subtleties involving the words "entity", "name" and "term" are largely ignored.
Based on formal ontology a more principled typology is introduced.
