Description Verb valency lexicon VerbaLex is one of few language resources which take a local context into account. For each Czech verb with its sense, Verbalex contains appropriate valency frames (patterns with morphological and syntactical information) in which the verb can appear. This, and the fact that a context of a word is crucial for determining sense of the word, makes VerbaLex suitable for disambiguation of polysemous and homonymous verbs. This paper tries to manifest this via investigation of valency frames of polysemous and homonymous verbs. Some related aspects of Verbalex and its contents are discussed too.
