It was the same story; only this time she came out better
as recently as
I spoke to him only an hour ago
and nothing more
it is simply a matter of time
hopes that last but a moment
I was merely asking
just a scratch
he was only a child
never except when
call me only if your cold gets worse
without any others being included or involved
the burden of proof rests on the prosecution alone
he works for Mr. Smith exclusively
a privilege granted only to him
a school devoted entirely to the needs of problem children
was entirely to blame
did it solely for money
with nevertheless the final result
We won only to lose again in the next round
He arrived only to find his wife dead
in the final outcome
These news will only make you more upset
exclusive of anyone or anything else
I'll have this car and this car only
she alone believed him
cannot live by bread alone
being the only one; single and isolated from others
an only child
the sole example
a solitary speck in the sky
a lonesome pine
the lone doctor in the entire county
a solitary instance of cowardice
the sole heir
