Language warnings

Have you ever noticed that you can tell a fair amount about the speaker by the way s/he uses the language?

Imagine trying to determine the intention of the speaker in these conversations:

He: I love you very, very much.


He: I love you.

That is very, very true!!


That is true.

Bob’s rule: The more adverbs the more likely the speaker is BSing or hiding intent.
