anybody will remember
« on: January 02, 2016, 06:23:42 am »
a. That's what anybody will remember about this day.
b. That's all anybody will remember about this day.


Can't these sentences mean two things?
1. Those who will remember anything about this day at all, will remember that.
2. That's what everybody will remember about this day.

Many thanks and happy new year!

Yes. But I would use everybody rather than anybody (see other thread on this subject). So #2 is fine for me.
Best wishes,
