Hi All,
I have a requirement where if I query for a word the system should tell weather the word represents a persons first name or last name or some disease or a country etc. I have heard about Wikipedia miner but I don't know which one to use. Can anyone guide me on this topic. If this is not possible with the Wikipedia miner, is there any other API to fetch this type of information?

Thanks & Regards,
