Depending on which word the speaker places the stress, this sentence could have several distinct meanings:

  • I never said she stole my money” – Someone else said it, but I didn’t.
  • “I never said she stole my money” – I simply didn’t ever say it.
  • “I never said she stole my money” – I might have implied it in some way, but I never explicitly said it.
  • “I never said she stole my money” – I said someone took it; I didn’t say it was she.
  • “I never said she stole my money” – I just said she probably borrowed it.
  • “I never said she stole my money” – I said she stole someone else’s money.
  • “I never said she stole my money” – I said she stole something of mine, but not my money.

De aici, după o temă pentru acasă trimisă de Marius Cortici. Discuţia aici.
