Thesis: English Letters Study Program, Islamic Education and Teacher Training Faculty. Advisor : M. Zainal Muttaqien, S. S., M. Hum Keyword : Ambiguity, News Title. This research limits on the neglect of the fact that newspaper has its own language style and grammar. The research focuses on the case of ambiguity in sport news titles of The Jakarta Post published in September 2017.. The research is aimed to find out: 1) what kinds of ambiguity found in the sport news titles of The Jakarta Post, 2) what makes the sport news titles of The Jakarta Post ambiguous, 3) how meanings conveyed in the ambiguous sport news titles of The Jakarta Post. This research is a descriptive qualitative research that refers to the method to formulate the conclusion by collecting, classifying, and interpreting the data of the research. The source of data research is The Jakarta Post published in September 2017. All of the ambiguous sport news titles in The Jakarta Post newspaper published in September 2017 are used as the data of the research. This research applies purposive sampling technique. Overall, there are 36 data of ambiguous sport news titles found in The Jakarta Post. Derived from the analysis, the research is concluded that : 1) There are two kinds of ambiguity found in The Jakarta Post published in September 2017: lexical and grammatical ambiguity. The data show that there is more lexical ambiguity than grammatical ambiguity found in The Jakarta Post published in September 2017. The fact show that 28 data represent lexical ambiguity (77,78%) and 8 data represent grammatical ambiguity (22,22%). 2) There are two factors of lexical ambiguity and three factors of grammatical ambiguity found in The Jakarta Post published in September 2017 which make word (s), phrase (s) or sentence (s) of title ambiguous. First, lexical ambiguity is rooted by two causes: polysemy (46,43%) and homonym (53,57%). Second, grammatical ambiguity is caused by three factors: grammatical word form (50%), contextual ambiguity (37,50%), and equivocal phrasing (12,50%). 3) Due to the effort of a journalist to make the title interesting and the constraint of limited space, he/she may raise the case of ambiguity (although not all the title ambiguous). However, still, the writer (journalist) has a particular meaning conveyed through the title. To figure out the meaning, it needs special context. A clear understanding about the ambiguous title (the message of the writer) can be found through the text under the title. Yet, the title still becomes the first attraction and impression for the readers. Therefore, the attractive news titles will open the possibilities for readers to read.
