Abstract: Ambiguity during communication, in which a linguistic or gestural sign has multiple meanings, is often considered to be a deterrent to successful communicative interactions. The resolution of ambiguity, therefore, has been a concern in linguistics and in communication studies. This paper critiques certain prevalent experimental paradigms, which have been the most popular approaches to investigate ambiguity resolution, and proposes an alternative methodology to understand and address this phenomenon.
