WSD Methods

In this section we present two WSD methods based, respectively, on the two main methodological approaches outlined above: a specification marks method (SM) Montoyo2001cicling as a knowledge-based method, and a maximum entropy-based method (ME) suarezCOLING2002 as a corpus-based method. The selected methods can be seen as representatives of both methodological approaches. The specification marks method is inspired by the conceptual density method Agirre1996 and the maximum entropy method has been also used in other WSD systems Dang2002.
