Is there a difference between o and oppure


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/formaggiamente

"o" = or "oppure" = or rather

As someone commented previously, although they're often interchangeable, you can determine which variant is most applicable to your phrase by thinking of "o" as equivalent to "or only".

Please correct me if any of this is wrong.

So could it be that oppure is basically an exclusive or? It can be either A or B, but not A and B at the same time?

What changes with the change in the direction of the accent?

If "o" = "or only" wouldn't this sentence mean "I drink tea or only coffee"?
