    only

    Hi there,

    Is there any difference between the following sentences when 'only' are placed in two different positions?


    1. It is not the job only for the janitor. We must play our part, too
    2. It is not the job for the janitor only. We must play our parts, too.

    Thanks
    pete

    It is not only the janitor's job.
    It's not just the janitor's job.
    It's not a job for the janitor alone.
