Word-sense Disambiguation - External Knowledge Sources

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.)

    For those parents from lower-class and minority communities ... [who] have had minimal experience in negotiating dominant, external institutions or have had negative and hostile contact with social service agencies, their initial approaches to the school are often overwhelming and difficult. Not only does the school feel like an alien environment with incomprehensible norms and structures, but the families often do not feel entitled to make demands or force disagreements.
    Sara Lawrence Lightfoot (20th century)

    It is not when truth is dirty, but when it is shallow, that the lover of knowledge is reluctant to step into its waters.
