Animacy Denoting German Nouns: Annotation and Classification

Manfred Klenner, Anne Göhring


Abstract
In this paper, we introduce a gold standard for animacy detection comprising almost 14,500 German nouns that might be used to denote either animate entities or non-animate entities. We present inter-annotator agreement of our crowd-sourced seed annotations (9,000 nouns) and discuss the results of machine learning models applied to this data.
