That depends on what you mean by polysemy:
> do any of these controlled English
> languages include forms of polysemy?
If by polysemy, you mean the kind of polymorphism
that is supported by many programming langugaes,
then the answer is yes. They could allow a word
to be specialized to a subtype by context.
But the phenomenon in natural languages to which
the term "polysemy" is applied allows much wider
ranging kinds of variations than are supported
by most polymorphic languages.
So when you ask a question like that, you should
supply specific examples of the kind of polysemy
you are talking about.
In other words, what is it that you want to say?
And what kind of polysemy do you want? Be specific.
State some particular sentences that you want to
express where polysemy is essential to what
you want to say.
