Venue Annual Meeting of the Association of Computational Linguistics
Session Main Conference
Year 1992

(LDOCE), is a dictionary for learners of English as Dictionaries contain a rich set of relation- ships between their senses, but often these relationships are only implicit. We report on our experiments to automatically iden- tify links between the senses in a machine- readable dictionary. In particular, we au- tomatically identify instances of zero-affix morphology, and use that information to find specific linkages between senses. This work has provided insight into the perfor- mance of a stochastic tagger.
