He asked me what I expected.


I know the sentence above is ambiguous:semantically, it could be either
He asked me the thing that I expected.


or
He asked me, 'What do you expect?'
.

And I also know that the context is the determinant.

My question is, again, what do you think the 'feel' of such 'what' is? What would come up to your mind when you hear such 'what' at first, without context?
