Mischievous "Only"

Only he said that he loved her
He only said that he loved her
He said only that he loved her
He said that only he loved her
He said that he only loved her
He said that he loved only her
He said that he loved her only

"A little learning is a dangerous thing." - Alexander Pope.

What you said sometimes cannot be accurately understood because the hearer unconsciously translates what he hears into something he can understand.
