Disambiguation is an operation that tries to resolve word
sense ambiguity cases, particularly
the ones ascribed to homographs, that is
words with the same graphic form but
N.B.: In T-LAB Plus some
disambiguation functions are implemented in the Text Screening tool. Moreover, during the
import stage, T-LAB recognizes and distinguishes three kinds of
- proper nouns;
- multiwords (compound words and
- compound tenses of verbs.
In any case, T-LAB uses lists in its database which
have been built and tested to limit the most frequent cases of
ambiguity (effectiveness criterion)
and to moderate processing times (efficiency criterion).
