Abstract: Arguing that various ways of using context in word sense disambiguation (WSD) can be considered as distinct representations of a polysemous word, a theoretical framework for the weighted combination of soft decisions generated by experts employing these distinct representations is proposed in this paper. Essentially, this approach is based on the Dempster-Shafer theory of evidence. By taking the confidence of individual classifiers into account, a general rule of weighted combination for classifiers is formulated, and then two particular combination schemes are derived. These proposed strategies are experimentally tested on the datasets for four polysemous words, namely interest, line, serve, and hard, and obtained the better result in comparison with previous studies for all cases, with an exception of the word line.
