In llatllral language processing, many methods have been proposed to solve the ambiguity l)roblems. In this paper, we propose a lechnique to COlnbille a method of interactive disamlfiguation and automatic one tbr anlbiguous words. The characteristic of our method is that the accuracy of the interactive dis- alnbiguation is considered. The method solves the two following l)roblems when combining those dis- amlfiguation nwthods: (1) when should the inter- act.iv(" disaml)iguation be executed? (2) which am- biguous word shouhl be disambiguated when more lhan one aml)iguous words exist in a sentence? Our method defines the condition of executing the inter- action with users and the order of disambiguation based on the strategy where the accuracy of the re- sult is nlaximize(I, ...
