  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Adverb Phrase 18. The adverb phrase today

  • is by no means. Okay. Let's take a look at the note here. If someone says by no

  • means he or she means absolutely not, like no way or in no way, not at all. So

  • this is the way we often use it. Okay. Let's continue. The word 'means' by itself.

  • Yes. So if you kind of separated it by itself can also be used to refer to sums

  • or amounts. So this is why you know, you can you could kind of guess why we say

  • by no means. It really means by no amount, by not even a small amount. That's

  • why we say, especially small amounts. So we say by no means. It means not even by a

  • small bit or a small amount. It can also be used to refer to "way" sometimes.

  • Sometimes we use the word "means" to mean like a way or a method. So sometimes when

  • you say by no means, it kind of means like in no way also. All right. So let's

  • take a look at ... we have four examples here. Let's look at them. All right.

  • Example number one. This is by no means your best option. You have several other

  • choices. So this is in no way your best option. Option or this is absolutely not

  • your best option. Okay let's look at number two. She is by

  • no means a miser. She just doesn't believe in wastefully

  • squandering away our budget. So then probably another person was probably

  • accusing her of being a miser and somebody else was standing up for her and saying,

  • No, no absolutely not. She's not a miser. You know a miser would be a person that

  • doesn't want to spend money or doesn't want to share, or something like that.

  • She's saying she's not that way. She's just trying to be careful not waste the

  • money. So she is by no means. All right. So here she's by no means. It could be you

  • know, She is in no way a miser or not, not even any amount. So no way that you could even

  • measure it, could you call her a miser. She is by no means a miser.She just

  • doesn't believe in wastefully squandering. Remember when

  • you squander that's when you spend foolishly, away our budget. Okay. Let's

  • look at number three. He is by no means a pauper. A pauper means you know, somebody who is

  • very poor. Believe me, believe me or trust me, he has a lot more money than you do.

  • You know , so was talking to somebody saying, no you're wrong if you think he's a

  • pauper. He's not. All right. And number four you should by no means ignore his

  • warning. So you should in no way ignore his warning or you should absolutely not

  • ignore his warning. Yes. He means what he says. If you don't do it, you will be

  • punished. So we use by no means in all of these ways. Okay. Anyway, I hope you got it. I

  • hope it is clear. Thank you for your time . Bye- bye.
