This paper shows that our WSD system using rich linguistic features achieved high accuracy in the classification of English SENSEVAL2 verbs for both fine-grained (64.6%) and coarse-grained (73.7%) senses. We describe three specific enhancements to our treatment of rich linguistic features and pre- sent their separate and combined contributions to our system’s performance. Further experiments showed that our system had robust performance on test data without high quality rich features.
