    only

    Hi
    Is there any different between these sentences?

    I only advised him to act cautiously.

    I advised only him to act cautiously.

    Only I advised him to act cautiously.

    I advised him only to act cautiously.


    Thank You

    Re: only

    In each case "only" modifies the word or phrase that immediately follows. "Only advised". "Only him". "Only I". "Only to act". Look at the sentences again, and see if that helps.

    Re: only

    And note that it's "Is there any difference ...?"

    Difference = noun
    Different = adjective
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
