Abstract This paper gives a brief overview of the results of our work during the Summer 2003 Workshop of the Center for Language and Speech Processing at the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore Maryland. The goal of the project was to determine the feasibility of extending named entity recognition to common nouns and determine whether or not it is possible to assign automatically a predetermined set of semantic tags and approach human performance in the task.
