Dear Teachers, Please explain. What does in the sense that mean? Does it mean 'because of '
Words, phrases, and even sentences, can have more than one meaning or sense, so in saying "in the sense that", the speaker is reducing the meaning, or semantic boundaries the word/phrase/sentence expresses.
Ex:I love you, but not in the sense that you mean when you say that you "love someone". I love you but just as a friend.
