Fallacies Of Ambiguity

Fallacies that arise from the equivocal use of words or phrases in the premises or in the conclusion of an argument, some critical term having different senses in different parts of the argument. A term may have one sense in a premise, quite a different sense in the conclusion. When the inference drawn depends upon such changes, it is fallacious.
