In this paper, we present a unified model for the automatic induction of word senses from text, and the subsequent disambiguation of particular word instances using the automati- cally extracted sense inventory. The induction step and the disambiguation step are based on the same principle: words and contexts are mapped to a limited number of topical dimen- sions in a latent semantic word space. The in- tuition is that a particular sense is associated with a particular topic, so that different senses can be discriminated through their association with particular topical dimensions; in a similar vein, a particular instance of a word can be dis- ambiguated by determining its most important topical dimensions. The model is evaluated on the SEMEVAL-2010 word sense induction and disambiguation ...
