AMBIGUITY AS AN INSTRUMENT IN VERBAL EXPRESSION
The instances of the use of polysemic/polysemous phrases have been analysed in this paper via usages predominantly from the political discourse. There are divided views in terms of the resulting vague or ambiguous words or phrases. Namely, it is true that on the one hand natural languages demonstrate inclination towards use of phrases gradually becoming fixed, while on the other hand it is true that polysemy as a phenomenon has been widely used as a tool or more precisely as an instrument to convey a message, whose interpretation would be context-dependant. In addition, although contextdependant, the interpretation in the analysed instances is crucial and might lead to grave consequences if the meaning was not properly decoded.
