La madre de un alumno

Encontré en El País:

la madre de un alumno de 5 años que agredió a la maestra

Who hit the teacher?

Amphibology did.

But the rest of the sentence makes it clearer:

I've never heard "amphibology" used, although it does mean
"an ambiguous grammatical construction".

Oh well, I will try to remember "ambiguity" each time I want to write "amphibology" then.
