Abstract

We describe the University of Heidelberg (UHD) system for the Cross-Lingual Word Sense Disambiguation SemEval-2010 task (CL-WSD). The system performs CL-WSD by applying graph algorithms previously developed for monolingual Word Sense Disambiguation to multilingual co-occurrence graphs. UHD has participated in the Best and out-of-five (OOF) evaluations and ranked among the most competitive systems for this task, thus indicating that graph-based approaches represent a powerful alternative for this task.
