External Knowledge Sources

Knowledge is a fundamental component of WSD. Knowledge sources provide data which are essential to associate senses with words. They can vary from corpora of texts, either unlabeled or annotated with word senses, to machine-readable dictionaries, thesauri, glossaries, ontologies, etc. They can be classified as follows:

  1. Structured:
    • Thesauri
    • Machine-readable dictionaries (MRDs)
    • Ontologies
  2. Unstructured:
    • Corpora: raw corpora and sense-annotated corpora
    • Collocation resources
    • Other resources (such as word frequency lists, stoplists, domain labels, etc.)

    Strange spars of knowledge and dimmed wares of price.
    Ezra Pound (1885–1972)
