"He's starting to look this way." "Researchers are just starting to look at the psychology of binge watching."
Is there ambiguity when using "starting to"? In the first sentence, he has not actually completed the motion and has yet to look "this way," but in the second sentence, "starting to" seems to just describe that they are in the beginning stages, but they have already completed the motion "to look" and are still in the phase. In addition, when people say sentences like "It's starting to rain" and "It's starting to bleed" the actions (rain, bleed) have already began and are continuing, but when using a sentence like "He is starting to sit" the action of "sit" is still in the middle of being completed and he has not actually sat down yet. If there is ambiguity, how do you tell the difference?
