Assunto:  I studied but I didn't
 
Mensagem:  Complementando o post de Dale, empregaríamos, sim, um I did study (em vez de um I studied), se quiséssemos enfatizar a ação ou o fato de não ter realmente estudado.

Outros exemplos:

A: "Did you turn off the ignition system? It appears the rocket's just taken off by itself, I guess."
B: "Huh... I did turn it off! I swear to God!"
A: "I think we'll have a lot of explaining to do before the commission fires us for letting a rocket go  like that!"
B: <grumble> :-(
