For example, recently published OS microtheories address topics such as lexical disambiguation (McShane, Nirenburg, and Beale 2016), multiword expressions (McShane, Nirenburg, and Beale 2015), nominal compounds (McShane, Beale, and Babkin 2014), verb phrase ellipsis (McShane and Babkin 2016a), and unexpected input (McShane, Blissett, and Nirenburg 2017).
Several automatic methods for lexical disambiguation relative to a standard dictionary are under investigation at the Computing Research Laboratory (CRL) at NMSU.
