As well as showing off some of me new bits of video kit, in this video I tackle the subject of ambiguity in language, and spend some while on the word 'only'. I argue that ambiguity comes from a lack of imagination on the part of the writer (I am talking mainly about written language). Writers often fail to put themselves in the mind of a reader who does not have the benefit of hearing the tone of voice used by the writer. Just think how much irony gets missed in on-line chats.
