Representation and Acquisition of Lexical Knowledge: Polysemy, Ambiguity, and Generativity
Papers from the AAAI Spring Symposium
The lexicon is at the core of many NL, MT, IR, and KR systems, and thus can play a central role in determining the success or failure of a system. Nonetheless, points of sharp controversy have arisen concerning the most flexible and powerful way to represent the extensive variety of lexical information required to drive robust applications. We intend this symposium to provide a forum to discuss problematic issues of lexical representation, and ways to solve difficult and complex questions. The symposium will maintain a balance between theoretical and applications oriented papers.
