nameconflate is a data creation utility for word sense
disambiguation/discrimination experiments. In particular, we have used
this to test the SenseClusters package (http://senseclusters.sourceforge.net).
nameconflate can also be viewed as a document format converter utility
because it accepts input files in either English GigaWord format or
plain text format and converts it to SENSEVAL2 format.
The main speciality of nameconflate is its capability to take given
words or patterns and mask each of occurrence of the given words or
words matching the given patterns in the input data and thus
artificially create ambiguity.
