Coarse to Fine Grained Sense Disambiguation in Wikipedia

Wikipedia articles are annotated by volunteer contributors with numerous links that connect words and phrases to relevant titles. Links to general senses of a word are used concurrently with links to more specific senses, without being distinguished explicitly. We present an approach to training coarse to fine grained sense disambiguation systems in the presence of such annotation inconsistencies. Experimental results show that accounting for annotation ambiguity in Wikipedia links leads to significant improvements in disambiguation.
