Abstract: This article discusses Open Mind Word Expert (OMWE). The World Wide Web has both exacerbated the need and provided an opportunity for creating automatic tools for language processing. OMWE is a system that aims to tap people's ability to disambiguate words and to give computers the benefit of people's knowledge. Any Web user can visit the OMWE site and contribute some knowledge about the meanings of given words in given sentences. As a result, OMWE creates large sense-tagged corpora that can be used to build automatic WSD systems.
