It was found that this algorithm achieved only around 50% correct disambiguation when compared with manual judgment, however, retrieval performance using the senses it returned was 90% of that recorded using manually disambiguated queries.
Word sense disambiguation is a core problem in many tasks related to language processing.
In this paper, we introduce the notion of {\em soft word sense disambiguation} which states that given a word, the sense disambiguation system should not commit to a particular sense, but rather, to a set of senses which are not necessarily orthogonal or mutually exclusive.

If you're willing to disambiguate a training sample by hand, it is possible to develop classifiers for each ambiguous word.
If you don't want to disambiguate by hand, you can check the dictionary definitions of each sense of a word, and compare them for overlapping vocabulary with the definitions of neighboring words.
Within a discourse, an ambiguous word is probably used with just a single sense, or at least with predictably related senses.
