comment How to understand this “I not only” structure
@ColinFine Just, in this scenario, works when used with the meaning of only, and requires a subordinate clause. I not quite understand [x] is something I hear not too infrequently, but I suppose it could be a bastardization of I do not quite understand.

comment A word or phrase for “The problem solved itself”
I think here the best response would just be "problem cannot be replicated."

comment How to understand this “I not only” structure
@ColinFine It works with just and quite, too, off the top of my head. Perhaps there is some constraint where it only works with quantitative adverbs? I want to say monosyllabic as well, but only defies that.

comment How to understand this “I not only” structure
@ColinFine It's a logical negation of only... there's nothing anomalous about this construct. As well, the question isn't about that, it's about explaining what's going on.
