This paper investigates conceptually and empirically the novel sense matching task, which requires to recognize whether the senses of two synonymous words match in context. We suggest direct approaches to the problem, which avoid the intermediate step of explicit word sense disambigua- tion, and demonstrate their appealing ad- vantages and stimulating potential for fu- ture research.
