A student pointed out that I sometimes use the phrase "meaning that" in my essays, but he wasn't sure how to use this phrase himself.
Here are some examples from my essays:
- Penalties for dangerous drivers can act as a deterrent, meaning that people avoid repeating the same offence.
- Some bilinguals also have two cultural identities, meaning that they are able to adapt their behaviour effortlessly.
- Some people call this ‘cultural imperialism’, meaning that one culture has power over others.
Can you see when and how I use the phrase "meaning that"?
