I have the following bibliography entry:

@proceedings{ANA94,
title = {A methodology for automatic term recognition},
author = {Sophia Ananiadou},
booktitle = {Proceedings of the 15th conference on Computational linguistics},
volume = {2},
publisher = {Association for Computational Linguistics},
year = {1994}
}

When I compile I get the following warning:

Warning--to sort, need editor or key in ANA94

For some reason all proceedings entries are using editors for reference, I need to use authors as the point of reference.

    This entry is not a @proceedings, it is an @inproceeedings. @proceedings is for the entire book (which in this case normally does not have an author - only an editor), @inproceedings for an article within such a book (which has an author). – moewe May 9 '17 at 9:21

    Please consider showing a full MWE this may very well depend on the bibliography package and style you use. I suspect you are not using biblatex contrary to your tag, but I would like to be sure. – moewe May 9 '17 at 9:23

    Welcome to TeX.SX! You can have a look at our starter guide to familiarize yourself further with our format. Please make your code compilable (if possible), or at least complete it with \documentclass{...}, the required \usepackage's, \begin{document}, and \end{document}. That may seem tedious to you, but think of the extra work it represents for TeX.SX users willing to give you a hand. Help them help you: remove that one hurdle between you and a solution to your problem. – jjdb May 9 '17 at 9:24

Your entry is an @inproceedings entry

@inproceedings{ANA94,
  title     = {A methodology for automatic term recognition},
  author    = {Sophia Ananiadou},
  booktitle = {Proceedings of the 15th conference on Computational linguistics},
  volume    = {2},
  publisher = {Association for Computational Linguistics},
  year      = {1994},
}

A @proceedings is for the entire conference proceedings volume and it will normally have an editor. An @inproceedings, however, is for a specific article/chapter in a conference value and will be primarily associated with the author.
