This paper aims to introduce a new pars- ing strategy for large dictionary (thesauri) parsing, called Dictionary Sense Segmen- tation & Dependency (DSSD), devoted to obtain the sense tree, i.e. the hierarchy of the defined meanings, for a dictionary en- try. The real novelty of the proposed ap- proach is that, contrary to dictionary ‘standard’ parsing, DSSD looks for and succeeds to separate the two essential processes within a dictionary entry pars- ing: sense tree construction and sense definition parsing. The key tools to ac- complish the task of (autonomous) sense tree building consist in defining the dic- tionary sense marker classes, establishing a tree-like hierarchy of these classes, and using a proper searching procedure of sense markers within the DSSD parsing al...
