A solution to the problem of homograph (words with multiple distinct meanings) identification is proposed and evaluated in this paper. It is demonstrated that a mixture model based framework is better suited for this task than the standard classification algorithms – relative improvement of 7% in F1 measure and 14% in Cohen’s kappa score is observed.

Introduction To introduce the algorithm presented in this paper, we take a path that is inverse to the historical development of the idea of analogy (see (Hoffman 95)). This is necessary, because a certain incomprehension is faced when speaking about linguistic analogy, i.e., it is generally given a broader and more psychological definition. Also, with our proposal being computational, it is impossible to ignore works about analogy in computer science, which has come to mean artificial intelligence. ...
Lexicon definition is one of the main bottlenecks in the development of new applications in the field of Information Extraction from text. Generic resources (e.g., lexical databases) are promising for reducing the cost of specific lexica definition, but they introduce lexical ambiguity. This paper proposes a methodology for building application-specific lexica by using WordNet. Lexical ambiguity is kept under control by marking synsets in WordNet with field labels taken from the Dewey Decimal Classification. tion requirement.
Word sense disambiguation algorithms, with few exceptions, have made use of only one lexical knowledge source. We describe a system which performs word sense disambiguation on all content words in free text by combining different knowledge sources: semantic preferences, dictionary definitions and subject/domain codes along with part-of-speech tags, optimised by means of a learning algorithm. We also describe the creation of a new sense tagged corpus by combining existing resources.
Bernard Lang defines parsing as ~ calculation of the intersection of a FSA (the input) and a CFG. Viewing the input for parsing as a FSA rather than as a string combines well with some approaches in speech understanding systems, in which parsing takes a word lattice as input (rather than a word string). Furthermore, certain techniques for robust parsing can be modelled as finite state transducers. In this paper we investigate how we can generalize this approach for unification grammars. In particular we will concentrate on how we might the calculation of the intersection of a FSA and...

Perhaps nothing is so ingrained in our senses as the perpetual pulling of the earth on our surroundings. It’s always there, never changing. It’s been hugging solids, liquids and gases to the earth’s surface for over 4 billion years. Earth’s gravity is built into our descriptions of our world with words like up, down, and weight. Exactly what is weight? A weight is a force, nothing more. Your weight is the pull of earth’s gravity on your body. Likewise, the weight of your car is the force of the earth’s attraction for it. The greater the mass is, the...
Whenever possible, one-word definitions are used. Although this makes a definition less precise, it also makes it easier to remember. Many common words appear in the list of words, but with their less common meanings.
Of this work Mr. Ruskin says in his Autobiography:—"The idea had come into my head in the summer of '37, and, I imagine, rose immediately out of my sense of the contrast between the cottages of Westmoreland and those of Italy. Anyhow, the November number of Loudon's Architectural Magazine for 1837 opens with 'Introduction to the Poetry of Architecture; or the Architecture of the Nations of Europe considered in its Association with Natural Scenery and National Character,' by Kata Phusin. I could not have put in fewer, or more inclusive words, the definition of what half my future life was...
