Let's eat grandma!

Mon, 07/23/2018 - 19:25

Am I a cannibal if I say:  “let’s eat Grandma” ...

... or do I mean something else?

Speaking clearly also means pausing when you speak. A short break in a sentence not only gives the speaker time to understand your statement, it can also clarify or even change its meaning.

Did I really intend to eat Grandma or was it only an invitation for lunch: “Let’s eat, Grandma!”?
