I told my friend that it doesn't exactly mean the same to say "I walked almost two miles today" and to say "I almost walked two miles today". I told him that the first means that you walked like one and a half miles while the second means that you were on a cycle or something and it was so slow and tiring that it was almost like you actually walked.

Does split infinitives have anything to do with this? Cause he claims it is split infinitive or something. As much as I remember, split infinitives are like to loudly shout. The adverb 'loudly' coming between the split form of the verb shout. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Thanks, and waiting for your reply.

Hello Lynx

If I have not any context, I'll take your second sentence as "I narrowly escaped walking two miles today"

Absolutely. "I almost walked two miles, today, but I stayed in bed instead".
