The English Language Game

I love this - you couldn't do this with French, where words have a much more strict order that English.  I find it an elegant demonstration of the power of English.

The English Game:  Place the word 'only' anywhere in this sentence:

"She told him that she loved him."

Today a guy with a German accent asked for, a weak cup of tea. He caught it, laughed and changed it to, a cup of weak tea. We joked about it.

Sometimes it takes non native speakers to teach us correct grammar.

Don't know about German but English is less rigid than French.
