We report on the large-scale acquisition of class attributes with and without the use of lists of representative instances, as well as the discovery of unary attributes, such as typically expressed in English through prenominal adjectival modification. Our method employs a system based on compositional language processing, as applied to the British National Corpus. Experimental results suggest that documentbased, open class attribute extraction can produce results of comparable quality as those
