This paper describes a specific semantic property underlying binary dependencies: co-composition. We propose a more general definition than that given by Pustejovsky, what we call “optional co-composition”. The aim of the paper is to explore the benefits of optional cocomposition in two disambiguation tasks: both word sense and structural disambiguation. Concerning the second task, some experiments were performed on large corpora.
