Abstract

This paper presents a method of linking and creating bilingual sense correspondences between English and Japanese noun word dictionaries. Locally, we extracted bilingual noun words using sentence-based similarity. Globally, for each monolingual dictionary, we identified domain-specific senses using a textual corpus with category information. We incorporated these, i.e., we assigned a sense to each noun word of the extracted bilingual words keeping domain (category) consistency. Evaluation on the WordNet 3.0 and EDR Japanese dictionaries using Reuters andMainichi Japanese newspaper corpora showed 23.1% improvement of bilingual noun word extraction over the baseline with local data view only. Moreover, we found that the extracted bilingual noun senses can be used as a lexical resource for the machine translation.
