#EngTrivia: by the way, anyway, anyways, any way

‘By the way’ dan ‘anyway’ seringkali digunakan untuk menyambung pembicaraan. Tapi apakah perbedaan di antara keduanya?

1) ‘By the way’ dipakai jika topik yang dibicarakan sama sekali berbeda dari topik sebelumnya (mengalihkan topik pembicaraan).

Contoh:

A: What are you doing tonight?

B: I think I’m just going to stay home. By the way, have you seen John?

2) ‘Anyway’ dipakai untuk melanjutkan/menyimpulkan topik pembicaraan sebelumnya.

Contoh:

A: What are you doing tonight?

B: I think I’m just going to stay home. Anyway, would you mind to buy me some dinner?

Di samping untuk menyambung pembicaraan, ‘anyway’ merupakan kata keterangan (adverb) yang berarti ‘bagaimanapun juga’.

Contoh:

The water was so cold but I took a shower anyway.

3) ‘Anyways’ merupakan bentuk informal dari ‘anyway’, sebaiknya penggunaan ‘anyways’ dihindari untuk penulisan formal.

4) ‘Any way’ merupakan frasa yang terdiri dari kata keterangan: any dan kata benda: way, yang berarti dengan segala cara, dengan cara apapun.

Contoh:

I have tried to fix it in any way I know.
