Representing Lexical Polysemy

Ann Copestake

This paper gives an overview of work on a computational approach to representing lexically governed polysemy. The framework is illustrated with an account of the interpretation of compound nouns and with some examples of extended usages of words. I discuss how generative devices can be controlled to avoid an explosion in interpretations and in the number of lexical entries.
