    The usage of "That way"

    Hello! How is it going? Thanks in advance!


    1.- I am intereseted in how 'that way'
    is used in English. I´ve always heard,
    for instance, ´he did it that way´

    But, sometimes I think of examples and
    I don´t know if I use it correctly.

    E.X. He just gets money by cheating

    Can I say 'He just gets money THAT WAY'
    Obviously, you must imagine I mentioned
    before something related to ´cheating´.


    Thanks indeed!

    Right.

    EX: He gets money (by doing it) that way.

    Thanks a lot, Casiopea!

    But, I wanna ask you about the adverb "just".

    Isn´t it used correctly in this sentence?

    E.X He JUST gets money that way


    Thanks again!

    "He just gets money that way" is not incorrect.

    If you said that to me in the context of cheating, I would think that he only cheated to get money, but does not cheat for other reasons.

    Hope that helped...

    It could also mean that he only gets money by cheating and has no source of honest income.
