I wonder the differences between two sentences below:
When my mother met the doctor in England, my father had only been dead for one year.
When my mother met the doctor in England, my father had been dead for only one year.
The first one sounds more natural to me and I don’t know why. Should I say the second one “…my father had been dead for one year only”? I don’t know how the location of “only” affect the meaning of the sentences. What’s the difference?
