Thread: eventually

    could you please tell me what meanings does the word "eventually" have?
    I know it means "finally" or "in the end", but could it mean also "next possible option? (like "as the case may be")

    You can use my car, eventually the car of my brother.

    Thank you very much.

    Re: eventually

    In my experience it always means in the end/finally. It can be used to make a prediction: My older brother was given a bike - eventually to be my bike, when I turned ten - on his tenth birthday.
