MASC-NEWS: an automatic annotation of the MASC corpus with both named entities and word senses.

We use BabelNet 2.0.1, a multilingual semantic network which integrates both lexicographic and encyclopedic knowledge, as our sense/entity inventory together with its semantic structure, to perform an automatic annotation, with both named entities and word senses, of the MASC 3.0 corpus, a large English corpus covering a wide range of genres of written and spoken text.
