in reply to Optimising Lingua::EN::NamedEntity for Very Strings

       Any suggestions so I can send the maintainer a patch?

Perhaps parameterisation, as in

use Lingua::EN::NamedEntity; my @entities = extract_entities($some_text, $max_string_length);
or filter the output (but not solve your problem)
my @entities = extract_entities($some_text, $max_entity_length);

A reasonable default for either option might be 92 characters, which would accomodate a variant spelling of the name of a hill in my country of origin;
