A short note about "only..."
7/27/2008 6:56:00 PM    [ Flag as Inappropriate ]

I find languages fascinating.
A short note about "only..."
 
These two sentences do not mean the same thing at all.
 
They only sell coats.  (They don't buy them or do anything else with them.)
 
They sell coats only.  (They sell nothing but coats)
 
 
Come to think of it, I've probably made some errors of usage regarding "only" many times.
 
 
Just an example of a linguistic "quirk" of language.
 
PS:  Haven't been around much.  I do hope all of you are doing well.  Love, peace, and best wishes,
 
Regis (Reg)
