In this paper, we investigate whether reusing existing grammars for NE recognition instead of creating them from scratch is a viable solution to time constraints in developing grammars. We discuss three possible factors that hinder grammar reuse and we present our corresponding empirical results, that encourage more widespread use of valuable existing resources.
