Book Description

This volume uncovers a great mystery about language: why can we communicate so effectively despite the fact that ambiguity is pervasive? Conversely, how do speakers use ambiguity to achieve a specific goal? Answers to these questions are provided in contributions from different academic fields: (psycho)linguistics, literary criticism, rhetoric, theology, media studies, law.
