Suddenly came up with a thought that the sentence below could have two meanings due to the "so ~ that" structure.
- I'm so happy that I can sing.
If the sentence had no "so", it would mean that the speaker is happy due to the fact that he can sing. But since it has "so happy that" it occurs to me that it could have two meanings. The first meaning I find it could have is: The speaker is so happy as to sing. The second one is: The speaker is happy due to the fact that he can sing. Not only about this particular sentence, but about other sentences which have "so ~ that" structure, would they be interpreted in two ways? How the sentence is interpreted, is it up to the context the sentence is involved?
