    say in other words

    I would be grateful if you could say the following sentence in another way. I particulary don't understand the meaning of "NEARLY" in the sentence below:

    "We nearly met yesterday"

    Hello Nadide, and welcome to the forum.
    Where did you find that sentence? Can you give us more context?
    Perhaps you meant the following instead:

    We almost managed to meet yesterday.
