Entity types

Here is the list of possible types that can be returned by named entity recognition, relation extraction and custom part-of-speech tagging.

Uppercase labels are used for named entities. If the label is lowercase, and this can be given in the attributes of named entities or in the elements related to the verb in a relation, it means it is a generic entity.

For example, in the text

Felipe is a florist.

florist can be labeled nph because a florist is a person, but not a specific one.
Felipe, on the other hand, is a specific person identified by a proper name, so he is labeled with NPH.
