Selecting a Named Entity Type   (AMR annotation guidance)

We normally select the named entity type from this list of NE types.
However, if there is a more specific type explicitly mentioned outside the name, we use that concept as a type.

Example:  "He works for AFP."
     (w / work-01
           :ARG0 (h / he)
           :ARG2 (p / publication :wiki "Agence_France-Presse"
                 :name (n / name :op1 "AFP")))

Example:  He works for the news agency AFP.
     (w / work-01
           :ARG0 (h / he)
           :ARG2 (a / agency :wiki "Agence_France-Presse"
                 :name (n / name :op1 "AFP")
                 :mod (n2 / news)))

Example:  He works for Bank of America.
     (w / work-01
           :ARG0 (h / he)
           :ARG2 (c / company :wiki "Bank_of_America"
                 :name (n / name :op1 "Bank" :op2 "of" :op3 "America")))

Example:  She works for UBS, a big Swiss bank.
     (w / work-01
           :ARG0 (s / she)
           :ARG2 (b / bank :wiki "UBS"
                 :name (n / name :op1 "UBS")
                 :mod (b2 / big)
                 :mod (c / country :wiki "Switzerland"
                       :name (n2 / name :op1 "Switzerland"))))

Example:  The poet William Shakespeare was born in Stratford-upon-Avon.
     (b / bear-02
           :ARG1 (p / poet :wiki "William_Shakespeare"
                 :name (n / name :op1 "William" :op2 "Shakespeare"))
           :location (c / city :wiki "Stratford-upon-Avon"
                 :name (n2 / name :op1 "Stratford-upon-Avon")))

Example:  Mr. Vinken is chairman of Elsevier N.V. , the Dutch publishing group.
     (h / have-org-role-91
           :ARG0 (p / person :wiki - :name (m / name :op1 "Mr." :op2 "Vinken"))
           :ARG1 (g / group :wiki "RELX_Group#Elsevier_NV" :name (e / name :op1 "Elsevier" :op2 "N.V.")
                 :mod (c / country :wiki "Netherlands" :name (n / name :op1 "Netherlands"))
                 :ARG0-of (p2 / publish-01))
           :ARG2 (c2 / chairman))

Note: Mr., Mrs., Ms., Miss etc. are considered to be part of the name.

In the following two examples, we select the standard NE types country-region and spaceship , because region is actually less specific than country-region and spacecraft and spaceship are synonymns (equally specific).

Example:  They come from Sudan's Darfur region.
     (c / come-01
           :ARG1 (t / they)
           :ARG3 (c2 / country-region :wiki "Darfur"
                 :name (n / name :op1 "Darfur")
                 :location (c3 / country :wiki "Sudan"
                       :name (n2 / name :op1 "Sudan"))))

Example:  China launched the Shenzhou spacecraft.
     (l / launch-01
           :ARG0 (c / country :wiki "China"
                 :name (n / name :op1 "China"))
           :ARG1 (s / spaceship :wiki "Shenzhou_(spacecraft)"
                 :name (n2 / name :op1 "Shenzhou")))
