The semantic annotation of documents is an additional advantage for retrieval, as long as the annotations and their maintenance process scale well. Automatic or semi-automatic annotation tools help in this matter with the use of patterns. In this paper we analyze the advantages of creating these patterns with standard web languages, as well as the requirements they should meet. We adopt the Speech Recognition Grammar Specification, by the W3C, initially intended for speech recognition in the Web. Our objective is to achieve its full adaptation to the information extraction processes, exploiting its powerful recognition, reuse and flexibility capabilities.
