Abstract

Ambiguity is a pervasive feature of language, which reflects the special relationship between structure and meaning. In verbal communication, unintentional ambiguity would lead to the failure of communication and should be disambiguated. But if speakers are encountered with intentional ambiguity which is positive, the best way is to cultivate the awareness of tolerance for ambiguity. In order to enhance undergraduates’ communicative competence, teachers should apply different strategies to develop their awareness of tolerance for ambiguity.
