in this paper we describe our participation to the Metonymy resolution at SemEval 2007 (task #8). In order to perform named Entity metonymy resolution on location names and company names, as required for this task, we developed a hybrid system based on the use of a robust parser that extracts deep syntactic relations combined with a non supervised distributional approach, also relying on the relations extracted by the parser.
