Weighing each word

The placement of a word can change the meaning of the entire sentence (or story).

The word: only

The sentence: Amit kissed my sister.

Only Amit kissed my sister.

Amit only kissed my sister.

Amit kissed only my sister.

Amit kissed my only sister.

Amit kissed my sister only. (This one is self-explanatory to South Asians.)
