IDENTIFYING DOMAIN-SPECIFIC SENSES AND ITS APPLICATION TO TEXT CLASSIFICATION

Fumiyo Fukumoto, Yoshimi Suzuki

Abstract

This paper focuses on domain-specific senses and presents a method for identifying predominant sense depending on each domain. The method consists of two steps: selecting senses by text classification and scoring senses by link analysis. Sense selection is to identify each sense of a word to the corresponding domain. We used a text classification technique. Senses were scored by computing the rank scores using the Markov Random Walk (MRW) model. The method was tested on WordNet 3.0 and the Reuters corpus. For evaluation of the method, we compared the results with the Subject Field Codes resources, which annotate WordNet 2.0 synsets with domain labels. Moreover, we applied the results to text classification. The results demonstrated the effectiveness of the method.
