Dictionary Alignment for Context-sensitive Word Glossing

Willy Yap, Timothy Baldwin
2007 Australasian Language Technology Association Workshop  
This paper proposes a method for automatically sense-to-sense aligning dictionaries in different languages (focusing on Japanese and English), based on structural data in the respective dictionaries. The basis of the proposed method is sentence similarity of the sense definition sentences, using a bilingual Japanese-to-English dictionary as a pivot during the alignment process. We experiment with various embellishments to the basic method, including term weighting, stemming/lemmatisation, and ontology expansion.
