    Default a question

    hello,

    I got a question about the usage of the word "way".

    what does the word "way " mean in the sentence below:

    you're way behind schedule and way over the budget?

    thanks in advance.

    Those uses of "way" are very informal. The word means "to a great extent", "very much", in those uses. :wink:
