Annotation of regular polysemy and underspecification

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review

We present the result of an annotation task on regular polysemy for a series of seman- tic classes or dot types in English, Dan- ish and Spanish. This article describes the annotation process, the results in terms of inter-encoder agreement, and the sense distributions obtained with two methods: majority voting with a theory-compliant backoff strategy, and MACE, an unsuper- vised system to choose the most likely sense from all the annotations.
