 To determine the optimal context field of ambiguous word, the paper uses cross-validation method to identify the optimal context window, and the best one has the lowest error rate in all of candidates. Using this method, it processes SemEval-2007 data sets and finds that the optimal context windows for this data sets is [-2, +2]. In order to verify this result, there is a WSD test for SemEval-2007 test data sets, which shows that the performance of Chinese WSD upgrades to a certain extent. And the different optimal context windows for different parts of speech of ambiguous word are discussed.

Key wordsWord sense disambiguation      Context window      Feature selection      Chinese
