I came across this sentence while watching a TV show on time travel:
I want you to go and see me when I was a sophomore in high school.
In this, the speaker is asking somebody to go back in time.
However, if I put the dependent clause at the start:
When I was a sophomore in high school, I want you to go and see me.
The meaning has clearly changed by moving the dependent clause to the start, as it doesn't refer to time travel anymore - it now simply refers to a wish that the speaker had when he was in high school.
Is this expected or am I overanalyzing? I'm wondering if there is a way to reorder this complex sentence without changing its meaning.
