In Defence of Ambiguity

Journal of Moral Education 9 (1):17-22 (1979)
Abstract
Abstract This paper argues for the importance of ambiguity in language as an aspect of moral growth. Through a criticism of some of the material in the Schools Council Moral Education 8?13 project it is concerned to assert that the context, rather than the language, of social interaction is often the key to interpreting communication. It argues that ambiguity constitutes a rich and valuable strand in English culture; cutting across class boundaries and contributory to moral development
