Terminology Tuesday: Equivocal
Adjective that describes the status of a term when it is used in more than one sense in the course of an argument, so that the argument commits the logical fallacy of equivocation. Note the equivocal use of terms in the following humorous example: “I love you. Therefore I am a lover. All the world loves a lover. You are all the world to me. Therefore you love me.”
