Ambiguity

Unclear language in a contract. In the event of a dispute over ambiguous language, a court usually sides with the party, if it exists, that possesses less knowledge or experience in how contracts are constructed. The thinking behind this is that the more experienced party ought to know better than to put ambiguous language in a contract. See also: Ambiguous statement.
