Our further work with the corpus revealed some more incorrect values in the annotations of temporal expressions found in the corpus. We have updated the TIMEX2 annotations appropriately; we have also removed those TIMEX2 attributes that had empty values. See the page of the corpus for more details.

A new corpus, ModeS TimeBank, with annotations of temporal expressions is now available. Distributed by LDC (the catalogue number LDC2012T01) is a corpus of Modern Spanish (17th and 18th centuries) annotated with temporal and event information expressed as TimeML mark-ups and annotated with spatial information following the SpatialML scheme. It contains 102 documents reporting a sea-crossing cruise by a ship called La Princesa, which took place from December 1768 to April 1769.

Members of the new group, called Temporal-info, are interested in temporal information extraction, annotation of temporal information, tense and aspect in language, and any other aspect of temporal information. The description of the group states:

The group is primarily for linguists and computer scientists with an interest in working with time. Typical topics are event and timex extraction and description, TimeML, linguistic models of tense and aspect, temporal information over different languages, and temporal relations.
