    Depends on where the accent is. "You're not fat." with a falling tone would let me think that the speaker hints that the other person is ugly. However, "You're not fat!" with a rising tone and "fat" accented just means that: the speaker doesn't think the other person is fat. No hint.

    I may be fat but you are ugly.

    I can lose weight.


    Can you find the hidden insult?
