It is demonstrated how Constraint Handling Rules can be applied for resolution of indirect and relative time expressions in text as part of a shallow analysis, following a specialized tagging phase. A method is currently under development, optimized for a particular corpus of historical biographies related to the development of the Dutch social movement between 1870 and 1940. It appears that CHR provides a modular language which is well-suited for tailoring a method optimized for the different linguistic constructs and the textual conventions applied in a specific corpus. We explain the principles and illustrate by sample rules. The project is currently in a phase of development and testing, and this paper focuses on the methodological issues, while a detailed evaluation is not relevant at present. Identified problems and possible extensions are discussed.
