Polysemy is still an equally complicated problem in contemporary linguistic research as it has been during the while of consolidated linguistic research. It is a theoretical issue, as there are still no definite direction in dealing with the sense distinctiveness and vagueness vs. polysemy problems, as the insufficiencies of various polysemy tests indicate. It is however, also a practical issue in the contemporary NLP applications as WSD suffers significant from drawbacks when dealing with highly polysemous words. The paper presents a procedure called behavioral profiling (BP) designed to address both the theoretical and practical issues.
