Word Sense Disambiguation

Word Sense Disambiguation  is the task of automatically choose the correct sense of a word in a context. KYOTO uses the UKB application for performing WSD over KAF files. UKB is a graph based method for WSD which exploits the structure of an underlying knowledge base. UKB is language independent, provided that a lexical knowledge base for this particular language exists. In KYOTO we use WordNet as lexical knowledge base, enriched with domain information.
