We present an approach to lexical knowledge rep- resentation where different uses of the same word can be conflated into a single meta-entry which en- codes regnlarities about sense/usage extensibility. This approach makes it possible to solve lexical anrbiguities by using contextual information (lur- ing language processing to ground underspecified word entries, and can be efficiently implemented within a typed feature structure formalism.
