Abstract

Word Sense Disambiguation is a crucial problem in documents whose purpose is to serve as specifications for automatic systems. The combination of different techniques of Natural Language Processing can help in this task. In this paper, we show how to detect ambiguous terms in Software Requirements Specifications. And we propose a computer-aided method that signals the reader for possibly ambiguous usage of terms. The method uses compound term measure (C-value), WordNet semantic similarity (WordNet wup-similarity) and a proposed semantic similarity measure between sentences.
