The paper examines different possibilities to take advantage of the taxonomic or- ganization of a thesaurus to improve the accuracy of classifying new words into its classes. The results of the study demon- strate that taxonomic similarity between nearest neighbors, in addition to their dis- tributional similarity to the new word, may be useful evidence on which classifi- cation decision can be based.
