Summary of Issue: ambiguous if not clear from context already?
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
with the current wording, it sounds like *any* word that could be ambiguous needs to be covered by a mechanism. however, i assume this implies \"yes, there may be different meanings for this word, but only specify pronunciation *if* the current context doesn\'t disambiguate it\".

Proposed Change:
change wording

\"...where meaning is ambiguous (even in the current context) without knowing the pronunciation\"

or add a note

\"this SC does not cover situations in which the specifically intended meaning of the word is clear from the existing context\"

also consider modifying \"How to meet...\" and \"Understanding...\" accordingly.
