In this paper we propose to use a semi-supervised learning algorithm to deal with word sense disambiguation problem. We evaluated a semi-supervised learning algorithm, local and global consistency algorithm, on widely used benchmark corpus for word sense disambiguation. This algorithm yields encouraging experimental results. It achieves better performance than orthodox supervised learning algorithm, such as kNN, and its performance on monolingual benchmark corpus is comparable to a state of the
