    Talking 159-by no means

    Hello all

    What does (by no means) mean???
    Can we know (not at all) a synonym for it?

    Thanks all

    Hi, Matilda:

    From Cambridge Advanced Learner's Dictionary:

    by no means (also not by any means) = not at all:
    It is by no means certain that we'll finish the project by June.
    This isn't the last we'll hear of it by any mean.


    Best wishes,
    Nyggus
