Oops... premature submission.

Anyway, Social & Societal are not synonyms in all cases so context could have everything to do with it. Do you have examples?

Exactly. Additionally, a tmesis can be a word divided into multiple words for dramatic effect.

Ex:

Aidan's comment was so good I've only got two things to say about it... Fan Tastic

Agree w/ Ben C. I interpret, "All I'm saying" as a statement intentionally devoid of supporting detail and background information so that it will either imply scandal and/or spur another party into saying what the "All I'm saying" originator was thinking.

Along that line, I suppose, "All I'm saying" is a tool of the sh1t stirrer.
