In Chinese, there is no space between words (groups of characters). I have heard that most of the time there is no confusion possible. But is there any Chinese sentence where there are multiple ways to group characters together, thus providing multiple meanings?
Such a sentence (if it exists) should be qualified as non-associative.
According the answers below, I should make some clarifications about what is asked in this post: it is not really about finding a sentence having several possible punctuations providing different meaning. By a "group of characters" I don't mean characters between two successives punctuations, but I just mean a word. Consider the following generic Chinese sentence (where ▢ represents a character):
Then group the characters to make words into a meaningful sentence, for example:
where each [▢...▢] is a single word. Then we are looking for a sentence where there is an other meaningful way to group the characters, for example:
providing an other meaning.
