1) I did tell him no lies.
Is that sentence grammatically correct?
Is it idiomatic?
If yes, in what situation would it be used?
I don't think it breaks any grammar rules, but it doesn't seem to work.
The 'did' doesn't seem to work in a negative sentence. The sentence seems
to be emphasizing two different things at the same time.
That's my take on it, but I am not sure at all, or else I wouldn't have asked.
Maybe there is a context where it will work.
