The purpose of word sense disambiguation (WSD) is to find the meaning of the word in any context with the help of a computer, to find the proper meaning of a lexeme in the available context in the problem area and the relationship between lexicons. This is done using natural language processing (NLP) techniques which involve queries from machine translation (MT), NLP specific documents or output text. MT automatically translates text from one natural language into another. Several application

It involves incorporating word knowledge from external knowledge resources to remove the equivocalness of words. In this experiment, we tried to develop a WSD tool by considering a knowledge-based approach with WordNet of Hindi. The tool uses the knowledge-based LESK algorithm for WSD for Hindi. Our proposed system gives an accuracy of about 71.4%.
