    There is ambiguity because there can either be parentheses or not be parentheses. You need the parentheses in Lisp. If you decide to just have parentheses around everything in normal infix notation, then you’re already halfway to the logical conclusion which is polish prefix notation. The next step is realizing polish prefix notation is better because you can have more than one operand.

    Funny when you showed that there is no ambiguity when using Polish notation, compared to “regular notation”. The thing is that you still used parentheses, and if they are allowed there’s no ambiguity in any notation. ;D (+ 3 (* 7 5)) is unambiguous but so is 3 + (7 * 5)
