equivoque or equivoke (EK-wuh-vohk, EE-kwuh-vohk) - n., an equivocal word or expression; a double meaning, pun, wordplay.


Also can be an adjective describing same, though that's sometimes marked as an obsolete use. This stems from the same Latin root as equivocal, aequivocus meaning ambiguous/equivocal, entering Middle English via French équivoque.
