    Default Re: Meaning of sentences

    (Not a Teacher)

    1) "I really like him." --- You like him a lot.
    "I like him, really." --- You honestly like him.

    2) "I want you to know." --- You want to tell him something.
    "I want to (get to) know you." --- You want to develop a relationship with him.

    I am sure you did not intend it, Tanzilia, but this sounds very much like an instruction from a teacher to a pupil. 'Please explain ...' would give a better impression to the volunteers who give up their free time to help people in these forums.

    Please! Please! May I add my two cents? You have asked a question about my favorite word.

    This is only my opinion based on what I have read.

    1. "I like him." If you want to emphasize the "liking," you can add "really." It makes the "liking" stronger. For example:

    "I really appreciate your help." (It equals something like "very much.")


    2. Tom: I like him.

    Mona: I do not believe you.

    Tom: I like him, really! = Believe me. (OR: Really, I like him. Maybe you do not believe me, but I am telling the truth!)


    *****

    HAVE A NICE DAY! I really (very much) liked your question. Really! (I'm telling you the truth!)
