Simple example

A: I have childrenOn the roadI think it's dangerous to play.

B:I do not think so.Because the childOutdoorsBecause it's good to play. Mr. A has a childStay home all dayBut is that really the right parenting?

Implicitly inducing "road = outdoor" to mentioning only "road", and over-expanding the unspoken element of "if you think it is dangerous, keep it in your house" I'm interpreting.

X: I have a rainy dayHateIt is.

Y: If it rainsIf it doesn't rainDrought will wither crops, dams will be depleted and we will all starve, but Mr. X will still be raining, etc.Better to be goneIs it said?

He interprets X's feelings as a private person as a matter of necessity, and further expands the unspoken element of "If you don't like it, you should get rid of it."
