other word meanings.
Keywords: Spreading Activation, Semantic Network, Links, Natural
Summary: Discuses semantic networks with labeled links. Talks about

words. Studies some psychological protocols of sentence understanding
including word ambiguity resolution. Suggests that a primarily
semantic approach can work well at this sort of problem.

- This summary came from a file which had the following
"The following summaries are the completely unedited and often
hastily composed interpretations of a single individual without any
sort of systematic or considered review. As such it is very likely
that at least some of the following text is incomplete, inadequate,
misleading, or simply wrong. One might view this as a very
preliminary draft of a survey paper that will probably never be
completed. The author disclaims all responsibility for the accuracy
or use of this document; this is not an official publication of the
Georgia Institute of Technology or the College of Computing thereof,
and the opinions expressed here may not even fully match the fully
considered opinions of the author much less the general opinions of
the aformentioned organizations."
