    Yes, I do realize that. My answer was in response to the question on
    how to distinguish the two cases; however I may not have got the
    intonation right; the stress should have been on the "If you want to
    make the difference clear" part. Because that's what I was trying to
    get across: if the difference must be emphasised.
