This article describes the results of a systematic in- depth study of the criteria used for word sense disambiguation. Our study is based on 60 target words: 20 nouns, 20 adjectives and 20 verbs. Our results are not always in line with some practices in the field. For example, we show that omitting non- content words decreases performance and that bigrams yield better results than unigrams.
