Equivocation is a logical fallacy where a term changes its meaning in the course of an argument. Wikipedia gives the following example.

A feather is light.

What is light cannot be dark.

Therefore, a feather cannot be dark.

We all know that for example a crow’s feather is dark. In this case “light” changes its meaning. First "light" means, “Not heavy”. Later “light” means "bright."
