Venue Annual Meeting of the Association of Computational Linguistics
Session Main Conference
Year 2008

A process that attempts to solve abbreviation ambiguity is presented. Various context- related features and statistical features have been explored. Almost all features are domain independent and language independent. The application domain is Jewish Law documents written in Hebrew. Such documents are known to be rich in ambiguous abbreviations. Various implementations of the one sense per discourse hypothesis are used, improving the features with new variants. An accuracy of 96.09% has been achieved by SVM.
