This paper presents a new open text word sense disambiguation method that combines the use of logical inferences with PageRank-style algo- rithms applied on graphs extracted from natu- ral language documents. We evaluate the ac- curacy of the proposed algorithm on several sense-annotated texts, and show that it consis- tently outperforms the accuracy of other pre- viously proposed knowledge-based word sense disambiguation methods. We also explore and evaluate methods that combine several open-text word sense disambiguation algorithms.
