    Question difference in meaning between two sentences

    Is there any difference in meaning if I change the position of the words :

    Please give our love to your family / Please give your family our love

    thanks

    Default Re: difference in meaning between two sentences

    as i know,they are the same meaning
    but "give our love to your family" emphasizes "our love"
    the succedent sentence emphasizes " your family"
    Am I correct?

    do you mean that if the succedent sentence emphasizes "your family" it excluded the reader ? it is just for the readerīs family?
    and when it emphasizes " our love " it means that the speaker is referring to himself and the reader ? the speaker and the readerīs love to the readerīs family ?

    Thanks
