    Wikipedia has two articles called "Disambiguation (disambiguation)". The first disambiguates the various meanings of the word "disambiguation" and directs users to appropriate articles. The second, "Wikipedia: Disambiguation (disambiguation)" refers to disambiguation within the context of Wikipedia itself.
