Disambiguation Using Case Frames

The selection restrictions of the case frame can be matched against the semantic markers of different sense meanings of words to choose combinations that make sense.

John hit the ball with a bat.
The selection restrictions of HIT-1 require the marker +concrete for the object; this is true of the ``spherical object'' meaning of ball, but not of the ``dance'' meaning. The correct sense of bat can be found in a similar way.
