When a word is used with more than one meaning there lies ambiguity. But semanticists and philosophers usually call a word ambiguous only when there is some uncertainty about which meaning is being used in the particular instance. A word is not ambiguous by itself, it is used ambiguously. It is ambiguous when one cannot tell from the context what sense is being used.
