Was I + adjective.
Please, what is the function and meaning of the following sentence:
"Oh, was I embarrassed?"
Does it show surprise? Is it a normal question?
It is a familiar exclamation which does not indicate surprise but suggests that the speaker was indeed very embarrassed. It is arhetorical question, in that it does not require an answer. In fact, a sympathetic response could be another question, like "Really?" or "Oh, were you?" or even another exclamation such as "I'm sure you were!"
