Abstract
In today’s society where the legal system is increasingly perfect, the law is closely related to everyone’s life. The law intertwines with language, and is inseparable from it as the law is expressed through language which is the carrier of the law. As an interdisciplinary subject, legal writing has its own characteristics. As a special phenomenon of language, ambiguity is more or less reflected in legal writing, affecting people’s legal life and thus becoming an important subject of legal writing research. Based on the typical legal cases in our daily life, the paper studied the influence of ambiguity caused by the Chinese grammatical structure on the formation, judgment and interpretation of legal disputes, and made a brief analysis of that issue.
