Abstract

A quantitative comparative study of homonymy in four well-known electronic Spanish dictionaries—EuroWordNet and three traditional dictionaries —is presented. It is shown that though structuring of word senses is quite different in all dictionaries under comparison, EuroWordNet differs from the traditional dictionaries much more than these differ from each other. It is also shown that the ordering of the word senses in Spanish EuroWordNet less agrees with the use of the senses in texts than the ordering in traditional dictionaries.
