Relaxation labelling is an optimization technique used in many fields to solve constraint satisfael,ion problems. The al- gorithm finds a combination of values for a set of variables such that satis- fies -to the maximum possible degree- a set of given constraints. This paper de- scribes some experiments performed ap- plying it to POS tagging, and the results obtained, it also ponders the possibil- ity of applying it to Word Sense Disam- biguation.
