English lesson

Professor Ernest Brennecke of Columbia is credited with inventing a sentence that can be made to have eight different meanings by placing ONE WORD in all possible positions in the sentence: 

*"I kissed her in the train yesterday."*

The word is *"ONLY"*.


The Message:

1. ONLY I kissed her in the train yesterday. (No one else did).

2. I ONLY kissed her in the train yesterday. (Confirmation)

3. I kissed ONLY her in the train yesterday. (I did not kiss others).

4. I kissed her ONLY in the train yesterday (I did not kiss outside the train).

5. I kissed her in ONLY the train yesterday (Not other places).

6. I kissed her in the ONLY train yesterday (no other train that day).

7. I kissed her in the train ONLY yesterday (Not today).

8. I kissed her in the train yesterday ONLY (Did not wait for today).


This is the beauty and complexity of the English language...!!!!
