    What does “d’ailleurs” mean?

    “D’ailleurs” is a French adverb that can have several meanings depending on the context.

    One of its most common uses is to indicate a change of topic or subject. For example, “J’aime beaucoup les films d’horreur. D’ailleurs, je vais en voir un ce soir” means “I really like horror movies. By the way, I’m going to see one tonight.”

    Another meaning of “d’ailleurs” is “by the way” or “incidentally”, used to introduce additional information that is somewhat related to the topic at hand. For example, “J’ai entendu dire que l’exposition était très intéressante. D’ailleurs, il y a une visite guidée gratuite demain matin” means “I heard that the exhibition is very interesting. By the way, there’s a free guided tour tomorrow morning.”

    In some cases, “d’ailleurs” can also be used to express a contrast or opposition to what has been previously said. For example, “Il n’aime pas les pommes. D’ailleurs, il en mange rarement” means “He doesn’t like apples. In fact, he rarely eats them.”

    Overall, “d’ailleurs” is a versatile adverb that can be used to transition between topics, introduce additional information, or express contrast.
