If, for instance, someone says “I deposited $100 in the bank,” most people would not think you used a shovel to dig in the mud.Types of ambiguity : Types of ambiguity There are mainly three types of Ambiguity 1.Lexical ambiguity 2.Syntactic ambiguity 3.Semantic ambiguitySlide 6: 1.Lexical ambiguity- The word or phrase contains in its having more than one meaning in the language to which the word belongs . 2.Syntactic ambiguity- arises when a complex phrase or a sentence can be parsed in more than one way . 3.Semantic ambiguity- arises when a word or concept has an inherently diffuse meaning based on widespread or informal usage.4.Ambiguity in syntax : 4.Ambiguity in syntax Ambiguity can also result from the way words are arranged in a sentence (syntax). In the following four sentences, the same words are arranged in different ways to produce four different meanings:For example: For example The only thing I did yesterday was test the bell jar. I tested only the bell jar for leaks yesterday. The only thing I tested yesterday was the bell jar. I tested the bell jar only for leaks yesterdayAmbiguity in punctuation: Ambiguity in punctuation Punctuation tells the reader when to slow down and when to stop. It may also have a major impact on the meaning. The comma is most important, but other punctuation marks are essential also. The comma (,) is most important. In the following sentences a comma makes a difference in the meaning :For example: For example In our study we examined neat methanol, neat ethanol, methanol and 10 percent water and ethanol and 10 percent water. In our study we examined neat methanol, neat ethanol, methanol and 10 percent water, and ethanol and 10 percent water.DISCUSSION: DISCUSSION You do not have the permission to view this presentation.
