Freihat, Abed Alhakim (2011) A systematic Approach towards the Solution of the Polysemy Problem in Natural Language Processing. UNSPECIFIED.
WordNet has been used widely in NLP and semantic applications. Despite the reputation of WordNet, it still suffers from many problems that make it hard to be usable by NLP and semantic applications. The major problem that has been extensively researched last decades is polysemy. Solving the polysemy problem is indispensable because the high polysemous nature of WordNet leads to insufficient quality of NLP and semantic applications results. In this proposal, we describe the polysemy problem, report the state of the art approaches, and introduce a novel approach for solving polysemy.
