Word sense

From Teflpedia

A word sense (/wɜ:d sens/) is a single meaning of a word.[1] Many words have more than one meaning, i.e. they might be described as "polysensual", whereas others have only one meaning and are "monosensual".

While receiving, people must use a process called word sense disambiguation.

Often the senses of a word are related to each other within a semantic field.
