In this paper we describe a method for per- forming word sense disambiguation (WSD). The method relies on unsupervised learning and ex- ploits functional relations among words as pro- duced by a shallow parser. By exploiting an er- ror driven rule learning algorithm (Brill 1997), the system is able to produce rules for WSD, which can be optionally edited by humans in or- der to increase the performance of the system.
