The resolving of word sense ambiguity is one of important problem in information retrieval. Words can have several meanings or senses, and a use of the word out of context is ambiguous between these senses. Mutual information is a relation measure which represents relation between a word and another word. To disambiguate the lexical ambiguity in the retrieved documents, we re-evaluate relation between terms of retrieved document and terms of query. In this paper, we discuss a resolving of word sense ambiguity of information retrieval that is two-level document ranking method using mutual information. At the first level, we retrieve documents based on an automatically constructed keyword index. At the second-level, we reorder the retrieved documents using mutual information. We show that our method provides a resolving of word sense ambiguity in the retrieved documents. Also, we analyze several formulas and found a formula which to disambiguate the word sense ambiguity in the retrieved documents.
