Please, help me to clarify this question.
Assuming that there are many books I owe to a person and some of them are here on my table, is it correct to say:
"The books I owe you are on my table"?
Will it show that those books just belong to ones I owe to the person, and somewhere else are other books I owe him? Or will it strictly mean that these are the only books I owe?
The confusion is because "the" is often used for an exhaustive list.
And if to say: "The book I owe you is on my table" - the same question - can it just show that this is one of those books and there are other books I owe somewhere?
