    so was I

    -I was talking about myself.
    -So was I.

    Is the second sentence ambiguous?

    Can't it mean:
    a-I was talking about myself.
    b-I was talking about you.

    Re: so was I

    It is ambiguous. Probably in real life the tone of the delivery and context would tell what was meant.
