    by all means

    Hi
    I wonder if "by all means" can mean "sure, of course/definitely as well.
    - Please take my advice.
    - Sure, by all means.

    Thanks

    P.S. In dictionary I just found "giving permission to somebody to do something".
    Being a non-native teacher, I'm so thrilled being in such a superb forum.

    Hi,

    by all means - definition of by all means by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia. scroll down until the 'idioms' part (after definition #3)

    Thanks Charliedeut for this fabulous site, I had visited it before but this time I bookmarked it for other would be questions. It was really complete.
