A crucial test for any MT system is its power to solve lexical ambiluities. The size of the lexicon, its structural principles and the availability of extra-lin_~istic knowled~q are the most important aspects in this respect. This paper outlines the experimental development of the SWESIL system: a structured lexicon-based word expert system designed to play a pivotal role in the process of Distributed ~an_~ay ~ Translation (DLT) which is being developed in the Netherlands. It presents SWESIL's organizing principles, gives a short description of the present experimental set-up and shows how SWESIL is being tested at this moment.
