In natural language processing, many methods have been proposed to solve the ambiguity problems. In this paper, we propose a technique to combine a method of interactive disambiguation and automatic one for alnbiguous words. The characteristic of our method is that the accuracy of the interactive dis- ambiguation is considered. The method solves the two following problems when combining those dis- ambiguation lnethods: (1) when should the inter- active disambiguation be executed? (2) which am- biguous word should be disambiguated when more than one ambiguous 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 maximized, considering the accuracy of t...
