Monolingual Word Sense alignment (MWSA) is the task of aligning word senses across resources in the same language. A word can be defined in different ways in different resources. Finding out which ones are somehow connected together is the task of word sense alignment. This task was recently the focus of the 1st “Monolingual Word Sense Alignment” Shared Task.

New out now: SyntagNet

SyntagNet is a manually-curated large-scale lexical-semantic combination database which associates pairs of concepts with pairs of co-occurring words to capture sense distinctions evoked by syntagmatic relations.
