n. the act of a lawyer or court in interpreting and giving meaning to a statute or the language of a document such as a contract or will when there is some ambiguity or question about its meaning.

Liberal construction adds modern and societal meanings to the language, while strict construction adheres closely to the original language and intent without interpretation.
