We introduce a type of unambiguity of languages, which is closely related to codes and a new classification of languages based on this type of unambiguity. Languages in this classification can be used in the area of cryptography to establish security-enhanced encryption schemata. AnO(n 2) time complexity algorithm of Sardinas-Patterson type is given to determine the unambiguous degree of languages when they are regular.
