If someone makes a partial statement (while not intending to make a Shevua) is that considered a Shevua? For example, we learn in the Torah about swearing (even in Hashem's Name) (which clearly should not be done unless there is a halachic need, which would be rare - and if it needs to be done only in consultation with proper halachic authorities). If a statement limited to something such as "I swear on Hashem's" - without completing the statement (and without intending a shevua) - and is immediately followed by "Bli Neder, Bli Shevua" (I assume that "Bli Shevua" is what would be said), would that have any halachic ramifications?
