It means that there is ambiguity in the word's morphological structure.
For example, consider "untieable". Is this "untie+able" or "un+tieable"? In this case, the structural ambiguity also leads to two different meanings: does it mean "capable of being untied", or "incapable of being tied", respectively? https://wordmaker.info/how-many/ambiguity.html
