Hi Simon,
Is it correct to replace MEANING THAT with NAMELY?
Thank you

I think "meaning that" = which means that (explain for the prior noun)

Thank you


No, "namely" doesn't work. Use "namely" when you want to name something that you have mentioned in a general way in the first part of the sentence.

For example:

The bar chart compares the turnover in dollars from sales of video games for four different platforms, namely mobile phones, online, consoles and handheld devices, from 2000 to 2006.

I guess it has similar meaning as "which means", "that's to say", or "in other words"
So it can be used to define the previous phrase.

Can I omit 'that' and just use 'meaning'?

i think it means‘in another word’

Hello Simon
I think MEANING THAT sounds like IN OTHER WORDS.

thanks for it

I also think "meaning that" means "which means that "

Hello Simon
Can "Meaning That" be used at the beginning of sentence? Is following sentence correct?

"Meaning that reader expectations also differ,
causing the clarity and effectiveness of the text to suffer if it is not rewritten to suit."
