I wanted to mention that Varada Kolhatkar and I will be doing a demo
of WordNet::SenseRelate::AllWords at NAACL (in Boulder, Colorado,
coming up next week). The demos are set to take place on Monday June 1
from 6:30 to 9:30 pm at the Stadium Club. I guess we'll all find out
what that is when we get there. :)
WordNet::SenseRelate::AllWords is our method of doing "all words"
sense disambiguation, and it relies very heavily on information from
WordNet::Similarity. This is also the topic of Varada's MS thesis, so
she's particularly well positioned to answer your more probing
We prepared a short paper that describes AllWords for the demo
program, you can see that here:
WordNet::SenseRelate::AllWords - A Broad Coverage Word Sense Tagger
that Maximimizes Semantic Relatedness (Pedersen and Kolhatkar) - To
Appear in the Proceedings of the North American Chapter of the
Association for Computational Linguistics - Human Language
Technologies 2009 Conference, June 1-3, 2009, Boulder, CO.
We hope to see you there!
Ted and Varada
