    Default Is it vague?

    She appealed to him.

    meaning:
    1. She made a serious and urgent request to him for something.
    2. He was attracted to her.

    Would it cause any confusion? Thanks. :)

    The wider context would almost certainly make it clearer, but there is a potential ambiguity.
