    as much as you = ambiguous?

    Hello,

    'I love her as much as you.'

    Is it ambigious? Could it mean:

    1. I love her as much as you love her.
    2. I love her as much as I love you.

    Is it correct?

    Thanks.

    Yes, but it's much more likely to mean 2. with this phrasing. If the intended meaning was 1., we would say I love her as much as you do.
