The NewsReader toolsuite is a state-of-the-art natural language processing pipeline for four languages developed in the NewsReader project [1]. It was developed to extract information on events, entities and perspectives in current newswire from the financial economic domain. Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam is currently adapting the toolsuite to historical newspapers in the context of CLARIAH. In this talk, I will detail the different types of analyses the tools are capable of, show how they are already applied to different domains and hope to discuss with the CLARIN community how we can optimise these tools for the humanities domain.
