Requiring only category names as user input is a highly attractive, yet hardly explored, set- ting for text categorization. Earlier bootstrap- ping results relied on similarity in LSA space, which captures rather coarse contextual sim- ilarity. We suggest improving this scheme by identifying concrete references to the category name’s meaning, obtaining a special variant of lexical expansion.
