NewsReader MEANTIME Corpus

The MEANTIME Corpus has been developed within the EU-funded project NewsReader, as a joint work between FBK, VUA and EHU.

It consists of a total of 480 news articles: 120 English Wikinews articles on four topics (i.e. 'Airbus and Boeing', 'Apple Inc.', 'Stock market', and 'General Motors, Chrysler and Ford') and their translations in Spanish, Italian, and Dutch.

It has been annotated manually at multiple levels, including entities, events, temporal information, semantic roles, and intra-document and cross-document event and entity coreference.

Distribution: The NewsReader MEANTIME corpus is licensed under a CC-BY license from the dedicated page on the NewsReader website.
