Please correct me if I'm wrong, but AFAICT, the cases of viele and manche in the following sentence are ambiguous: Viele wollen manche mit dem Wort „Sozialismus“ erschrecken. Either viele is the subject (of wollen) and manche the direct object (of erschrecken) or viceversa. Am I right? Does this sentence sound ambiguous to the "native ear". If not, which of the two alternatives above would a native speaker understand from this utterance? TIA!
