This paper presents an algorithm to integrate dif- ferent lexical resources, through which we hope to overcome the individual inadequacy of the resources, and thus obtain some enriched lexical semantic in- formation for applications such as word sense disam- biguation. We used WordNet as a mediator between a conventional dictionary and a thesaurus. Prelimi- nary results support our hypothesised structural re- lationship, which enables the integration, of the re- sources. These results also suggest that we can con> bine the resources to achieve an overall balanced de- gree of sense discrimination.
