I mean that's true but so do most statements that you can make.
@Memes Or Death, Name 4
@Whale4Sale, I didn't kill those children. She never ate your dog. I never wanted you. I always wash my hands. If you have a noun and followed by an absolute adverb then most times it works. May not always make perfect sense, but it will be correct yes
@Memes Or Death, Fair play
@Memes Or Death, it's not, you can't stress never and change the meaning.
I don't know what I'm talking about. I'm ABED, I NEVER watch tv.
I know everyone went through the sentence and emphasized every word and said, woooah it doesss
My favourite was... correctly place "only" in the following sentence: "She told him that she loved him"
@Shadow Storm, before the first she, or after loved.
@DongBobbler, *pssst* It fits anywhere in that sentence.
@Shadow Storm, yeah but I like those placements
I have a concern with this, you can't stress never. Unless sarcasm counts, stressing never only turns the sentence into a question or puts more weight on how much never you really meant it to be. A questions makes it not a sentence and therefore it has no meaning. Anyone want to argue with a linguistics major (who took it seriously)? I hereby declare shenanigans on this post.
OK. So what do I do with this information?
