Wikipedia articles are annotated by volunteer contributors with numerous links that connect words and phrases to relevant titles. Links to general senses of a word are used concur- rently with links to more specific senses, with- out being distinguished explicitly. We present an approach to training coarse to fine grained sense disambiguation systems in the presence of such annotation inconsistencies. Experi- mental results show that accounting for anno- tation ambiguity in Wikipedia links leads to significant improvements in disambiguation.
