A local online headline (thank you, Stoney):
”Ipswich schools just one of 25 national Green Ribbon winners“
Stoney’s insightful observation:
- “I would think that being one of just 25 would be more prestigious.”
Word order is important.
- ”Ipswich schools one of just 25 national Green Ribbon winners“
Where you put your just changes its meaning.
- “I just kissed her.” As opposed to what? Or do you mean just now?
- “I kissed just her.” As opposed to whom? Who else is accusing you?
(The word just is so deadly in English, it deserves a blog of its own.)
