Current approaches to automatic, class specific, image retrieval from the World Wide Web (WWW) by linguistic query often make use of an image's internal characteristics and file meta-data to augment and improve result accuracy. We propose that, in extension, improvement can be achieved in relevance, noise-reduction and completeness through sense disambiguation and contextual meta-data prepossessing. Our schemes exploits a linguistic ontology identifying query relevant homographs used to

Within the paper we investigate different schemes for keyword set construction; ontology exclusive and authority extended, along with three differing ranking mechanisms.
