This paper presents a disambiguation method in which word senses are deter- mined using a dictionary. We use a seman- tic proximity measure between words in the dictionary, taking into account the whole topology of the dictionary, seen as a graph on its entries. We have tested the method on the problem of disambiguation of the dic- tionary entries themselves, with promising results considering we do not use any prior annotated data.
