I'm reading an introductory book on syntax and one of the exercises says to discuss the interpretations which the italicized expression can have in the given sentences and to give an appropriate paraphrase for each interpretation. Now I'm not sure about the following example:
John is easy to recognize.
I don't see how this sentence is ambiguous, it could be because English is not my native language. I would paraphrase this sentence as:
It is easy to recognize John.
Can you help me see another way to interpret this sentence?
