    "I donít think I did know that."

    Hi everyone

    What does "I donít think I did know that" mean?

    Does it mean "I don't think I knew that" ?
    If yes, then what's the difference between this two sentences?

    Thank you.

    Re: "I donít think I did know that."

    Yes, it does. When we use did + verb, we are often using it to give extra emphasis. In this case, the person might be trying to make their denial of knowing it stronger.
