One Word Changes The Meaning..

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 hit him in the eye yesterday."
The word is "ONLY".


Hmm, sounds interesting?? Let's take a look it...
  • ONLY I hit him in the eye yesterday. (No one else did.)
  • I ONLY hit him in the eye yesterday. (Did not slap him.)
  • I hit ONLY him in the eye yesterday. (I did not hit others.)
  • I hit him ONLY in the eye yesterday. (I did not hit outside the eye.)
  • I hit him in ONLY the eye yesterday. (Not other organs.)
  • I hit him in the ONLY eye yesterday. (He doesn't have another eye.)
  • I hit him in the eye ONLY yesterday. (Not today.)
  • I hit him in the eye yesterday ONLY . (Did not wait for today.)
