Abstract

This paper explores the role of domain information in word sense disambiguation. The underlying hypothesis is that domain labels, such as MEDICINE, ARCHITECTURE and SPORT, provide a useful way to establish semantic relations among word senses, which can be profitably used during the disambiguation process. Results obtained at the SENSEVAL-2 initiative confirm that for a significant subset of words domain information can be used to disambiguate with a very high level of precision.
