ASK A QUESTION what does ¨ by the way ¨ mean?
What does ¨ by the way ¨ mean?. Is there several ways to use ¨by the way¨ or only one? thank you people
Literally, it means as I pass by. It is used as a notice you're going to change the subject to something that is, at least, vaguely connected to the topic you had been talking about.
Welcome to the forum.
The Spanish equivalent is "a propósito."
It is a shortened way of saying - while we're at it, or, since we're on the subject.
Yes, as said in the posts below -- it is an adverb used to introduce a different topic, meaning "incidentally".
