What's the Date? High Accuracy Interpretation of Weekday Names
In this paper we present a study on the interpretation of weekday names in texts. Our algorithm for assigning a date to a weekday name achieves 95.91% accuracy on a test data set based on the ACE 2005 Training Corpus, outperforming previously reported techniques run against this same data. We also provide the first detailed comparison of various approaches to the problem using this test data set, employing re-implementations of key techniques from the literature and a range of additional heuristic-based approaches.
