Description We present a methodology proposal for finding changes in contextual behaviour of words. Assuming that a word sense is defined by actual usages of the word in a given context, this task corresponds to finding changes of word senses. We outline here main ideas of our distributional approach based on word sketches and discuss preliminary results.
