This hierarchically organized lexicon defining senses in terms of other related senses has not been previously explored for this purpose. The proposed method is based on maximizing the overlap between associated word senses of nouns and verbs co-occuring within a sentence. The results of a small-scale experiment using this method are also reported. Overall, the approach proved more efficient for nouns, since not only was the accuracy score higher for this category (56%) than for verbs (46%), but for nouns in 22% more of the cases was a sense overlap found. As a result of an in-depth analysis of the predictions, we identified a number of ways the system could be modified or extended for an improved performance.}, booktitle = {Proceedings of the 20th Nordic Conference of Computational Linguistics (NODALIDA 2015).
