More worrisome: "I am not positive what it means in the current context"

    I am not positive what it means in the current context

    So, i intended "It confuses what the sentence means" to cover that. Or at least something like that. But, it does sound like a different option.

    To keep those options together, and to make it look pretty (at least in my current environment) added, "Context might change its meaning". Does that sound right to you?

      Sure, whatever. I have had feedback of what I thought to be perfect English, to mean something completely different in the context that I used it. Speaking/Writing in non-native tongue(s) will cause those embarrassing moments.

        Heh. And then there's knowing a closely related language or dialect, but using the wrong word for this dialect. I've heard some good ones about that. :)
