Without anyone or anything else; alone: room for only one passenger.
At the very least: If you would only come home. The story was only too true.
And nothing else or more: I only work here.
Exclusively; solely: facts known only to us.
In the last analysis or final outcome: actions that will only make things worse.
With the final result; nevertheless: received a raise only to be laid off.
As recently as: called me only last month.
In the immediate past: only just saw them.
Were it not that; except.
With the restriction that; but: You may go, only be careful.
However; and yet: The merchandise is well made, only we can't use it.
