Lexicon definition is one of the main bot- tlenecks in the development of new ap- plications in the field of Information Ex- traction from text. Generic resources (e.g. , lexical databases) are promising for reducing the cost of specific lexica defi- nition, but they introduce lexical ambi- guity. This paper proposes a methodol- ogy for building application-specific lex- ica by using WordNet. Lexical ambiguity is kept under control by marking synsets in WordNet with field labels taken from the Dewey Decimal Classification.
