This paper reconsiders the task of MRD- basedwordsensedisambiguation, inextend- ing the basic Lesk algorithm to investigate theimpactonWSDperformanceofdifferent tokenisation schemes, scoring mechanisms, methods of gloss extension and filtering methods. In experimentation over the Lex- eed Sensebank and the Japanese Senseval- 2 dictionary task, we demonstrate that char- acter bigrams with sense-sensitive gloss ex- tension over hyponyms and hypernyms en- hances WSD performance.
