What does the use of the word "but" at the beginning of the line, ‘ but all I said..’, suggest ?

Answer: 

The use of the word "but" at the beginning of the line, ‘ but all I said..’, suggests that there is a contrast or a contradiction between what the speaker said and what she felt or wanted to say.

Step-by-step explanation by Teachoo:

  • The word "but" is a conjunction that is used to introduce a clause or phrase that contrasts or contradicts with what has been said before.
  • In the extract, the word "but" is used at the beginning of the line, ‘ but all I said was, see you soon, Amma’. This line comes after the speaker des cribes her fearful and apprehensive feelings about her mother's old age and possible death.😰
  • The use of the word "but" also suggests that the speaker did not express her true feelings to her mother, which shows her inability to communicate her love and concern for her mother. 😔

Therefore, the use of the word "but" at the beginning of the line, ‘ but all I said..’, suggests that there is a contrast or a contradiction between what the speaker said and what she felt or wanted to say.✅
