He told us how he was honest and could be trusted

I guess it depends on the situation, and if people actually use the term correctly for what they are trying to say.

He told us that he was honest and could be trusted

He doesn't give you an explaination to why he is honest - just that he is.

He told us how he was honest and could be trusted

He tells you how he is honest by gives you examples to convince you, that he is, in fact, honest.

I am no linguistic wizard - but this is how I interpret it, or at least how it should be used.

  • how to understand the first example? – Kris Aug 16 '17 at 11:45
  • He just says: "I am honest and can be trusted." In the second example he says: "Something has happened to me to make me honest and because of that you should trust me." or something like that. – ssn Aug 16 '17 at 11:49
  • sorry but I mean the first example that I presented. – Kris Aug 16 '17 at 11:53
  • I would interpret it as thou she has tried many different things, but she cannot get the phone to take a screenshot. If the sentence was: She just text my sister and I that she doesn't know how to screenshot on this phone, the text from her could have been like this: "I don't know how to do it" - rather than "I have tried everything but I cannot figure out how to do it". – ssn Aug 16 '17 at 11:58
  • How means the degree? – Kris Aug 16 '17 at 12:03
