(1/2) > >>

mallu:
Is there any pragmatic difference between these 2  1) I am now by the gate                                    2)I am now at the gate  .      many thanks in advance ( corrected)

Daniel:
That sentences you wrote look identical. Did you mean to make a contrast?

mallu:
Yes, Can these sentence get different interpretation in some context?

Daniel:
You wrote the same sentence twice. Are you asking if it's ambiguous in some specific way? (All sentences can get different meanings in different contexts. That's what contexts do.)

mallu:
Oh, I am very sorry I  made a mistake. I put the preposition 'by' instead of 'at'  in the second sentence too. Kindly pardon me.You might now check the sentences once again
