Our study examined ambiguity in public perception about emerging biotechnologies through the use of several intermediate response options in a survey. | by Durant, J. Synthetic biology and genome editing have become increasingly controversial issues, necessitating careful attention and engagement with the public.

In continental philosophy (particularly phenomenology and existentialism), there is much greater tolerance of ambiguity, as it is generally seen as an integral part of the human condition. The Berry paradox arises as a result of systematic ambiguity in the meaning of terms such as "definable" or "nameable".

( As for my use of the fraught term ‘secularization’, there are numerous senses in which I do not use it. However, these crosscutting concepts themselves can represent potential lexical ambiguity across STEM and nonSTEM disciplines. Subsequently, the Ki, Mi, and Gi prefixes were introduced so that binary prefixes could be written explicitly, also rendering k, M, and G unambiguous in texts conforming to the new standard — this led to a new ambiguity in engineering documents lacking outward trace of the binary prefixes (necessarily indicating the new style) as to whether the usage of k, M, and G remains ambiguous (old style) or not (new style). Alternately, non-ambiguous emergencies (e.g. 2 − an injured person verbally asking for help) illicit more consistent intervention and assistance.

In the modern vocabulary of critical semiotics, metonymy encompasses any potentially ambiguous word substitution that is based on contextual contiguity (located close together), or a function or process that an object performs, such as "sweet ride" to refer to a nice car.
