This report describes a set of experiments carried out to explore the portability of alternative supervised Word Sense Disambiguation algorithms. The aim of the work is threefold: firstly, studying the performance of these algorithms when tested on a different corpus from that they were trained on; secondly, exploring their ability to tune to new domains, and thirdly, demonstrating empirically that the LazyBoosting algorithm outperforms state-of-the-art supervised WSD algorithms in both previous situations.
