This paper is an extended version of (Brun et al., 2007) describing our participation to the Metonymy Resolution (task #8) at SemEval 2007. 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.
