- I don't want to die yet.
Isn't that sentence ambiguous?
I can see two different meanings. I will present each in a context.
a) I am in pain, but I can take it. I don't want to die yet. But the pain is getting worse and there might come a time when I will want to die.
(Here 'yet' modifies 'want')
b) I don't want to die yet. I am still young. I want to keep on living for now.
(Here 'yet' modifies 'die')
I think case (a) could also be expressed with:
- I don't yet want to die.
Case (b) cannot be expressed with 2.
Is my analysis correct?
