Most work on word sense disambiguation has assumed that word usages are best labeled with a single sense. However, contextual am- biguity or fine-grained senses can potentially enable multiple sense interpretations of a us- age. We present a new SemEval task for evalu- ating Word Sense Induction and Disambigua- tion systems in a setting where instances may be labeled with multiple senses, weighted by their applicability. Four teams submitted nine systems, which were evaluated in two settings.
