NameType: type of named entity

Values: Com Geo Giv Oth Pro Prs Sur

Classification of named entities (token-based, no nesting of entities etc.) The feature applies mainly to the PROPN tag; in multi-word foreign names, adjectives may also have this feature (they preserve the ADJ tag but at the same time they would not exist in Armenian otherwise than in the named entity).

Geo: geographical name

Names of cities, countries, rivers, mountains etc.


Prs: name of person

This value is used if it is not known whether it is a given or a family name, but it is known that it is a personal name. We used this value for pseudonyms, nicknames, pen-names, foreign (mostly Slavic or à la Slavic manner) patronymics etc.


Giv: given name of person

Given name (not family name). This is usually the first name.


Sur: surname / family name of person

Family name (surname). This is usually the last name.


Com: company, organization, institution


Pro: product


Oth: other

Names of stadiums, guerilla bases, events etc.
