05 August 2016
Ken Adams has a short lesson on spotting and eliminating syntactic ambiguity. “What is this ‘syntactic ambiguity’?” you ask. It’s what happens when the structure of a sentence makes the sentence subject to more than one interpretation. It can be hard to spot, especially in our own writing. The fix is usually to restructure the sentence. Ken shows you how.
