Origin: L. Ambiguitas, fr. Ambiguus: cf. F. Ambiguite.
The quality or state of being ambiguous; doubtfulness or uncertainty, particularly as to the signification of language, arising from its admitting of more than one meaning; an equivocal word or expression. No shadow of ambiguity can rest upon the course to be pursued. (i. Taylor) The words are of single signification, without any ambiguity. (South)
