1) As much as anyone, I loved him.


Could this mean:

a) I loved him as much as I loved anyone.

or does it just mean:

b) I loved him as much as anyone did.

As much as anyone, I loved him.

It is unclear which is meant. You could read it either way. I suspect that the writer wanted to say that he was loved and I also loved him. But the wording is ambiguous.

Hello OWE

After someone has responded to your post, deleting your reply makes the whole thread lose its balance. At any rate, the thead is four years old and we might as well leave it where it is. I am locking it.

Thanks,
