Abstract

In this paper, we analyze a set of standard large English news corpora, specifically for the profile of NEs that occur in them. We take two distinct approaches for our analysis: First, a conventional approach of profiling the volume, frequency and growth of occurrence of NEs in the text, and, second, using complex networks as a tool to profile the co-occurrence patterns of NEs in the corpora, to see if the profile of NEs in natural language text is similar to that of words
