In the study of semantics, what is lexical ambiguity? Provide an example.
In semantics, lexical ambiguity is used to refer to a word that has multiple meanings. An example of a word with lexical ambiguity would be "nail." The word "nail" can either refer to a noun such as sharp piece of metal often used in wood, or it can also refer to a fingernail. It also can even be used as a verb.
What is the difference between a transitive and intransitive verb?
A transitive verb is a type of verb that is dependent on either an action or object in order to make a complete sentence. An intransitive verb does not require an action or object to be considered a complete sentence.
