comment One sentence with two meanings! “The door was locked”
Yes, you are right; "the door was locked" has (at least) two meanings. I think other languages have similar subtleties. Usually, the exact meaning will be clear from the context, or irrelevant if context permits both meanings.

comment Is Wayne's World's (NOT) a modern invention?
@hippietrail - you mis-parsed that. "Perhaps influenced by nit" and "adv." do not go together. This use of "not" may be related to the word "not." And "not" is an adverb.
