Abstract

A word sketch is a source of valuable information both for linguists and lexicographers but it consists of lemmas which are not disambiguated. In this paper we describe a method which can partially disambiguate these lemmas and increase a quality of information contained in word sketches. For the disambiguation we exploit intersections of English and Czech word sketches using an English-Czech dictionary.
