Is there any difference between 'I need only to do smth' and 'I only need to do smth'? I have read somewhere that depending on where the word 'only' in the sentence is the meaning of that sentence can be changed.

In my opinion, the position of "only" in a sentence will have an impact on the meaning of the sentence. So we should try to use "only" logically. Let's see this example: He only told me to do this. (Meaning: He was the one who told me to do this) He told me only to do this. (Meaning: He did not tell me to do other things) I hope you agree... Thanks!

Vera, let's face it. You are an ingrateful, rude know-it-all. Go ahead and use wanna, gonna, ain't, etc. You'll look like a genius. By the way, you never did answered my question.
