Vague & Ambiguous

Standard

Vague and ambiguous are buddies. They are often used together, and people use them interchangeably. But while something can be both vague and ambiguous, the two are not synonyms:

  • Vague means unclear, or imprecise.
  • Ambiguous means capable of having at least 2 meanings.

Examples later.
