ambiguous? It is a line from an article I've written, and the anonymous referee claims that
the reader has to guess to which of the two definitions the "which" at the beginning of the line refers.
It seems to me, however, that the which should refer to the definition immediately preceding it, since if I'd wanted it to refer to the other, I'd have written something like

As the title indicates, this is essentially a question about whether 'which' by default refers to the noun closest to it.
