Translations of "Arm"

Q: Bunu İngilizce (ABD) da nasıl dersiniz? I injured my arm [while] playing tennis.

Is it possible to replace [while] by [when]?

I have a thought that “while” is more specific than “when” and not totally wrong.
A: If you want to use “when”, I think it’s more natural to change it to —> “I injured my arm when I was playing tennis”

“I injured my arm while I was playing tennis” is natural too
Q: Bunu İngilizce (ABD) da nasıl dersiniz? I injured my arm [while] playing tennis.

Is it possible to replace [while] by [during]?

According to my dictionary, “during –ing” is not correct but no explanation.
Also I don’t really feel like I’ve seen the expression.
A: It’s wrong if you directly replace while with during.

Depending on what specifically you were doing, you can change the sentence.
If it was a tennis match/game, you can say: “I injured my arm during a tennis game”
If it was tennis practice, you can say: “I injured my arm during tennis practice”

A noun follows after “during” so you can’t say “playing” after “during” since “playing” is a verb
Q: Bunu İngilizce (ABD) da nasıl dersiniz? I injured my arm [while] playing tennis.

Is it possible to replace [while] by [in]?

I feel like "in" is often used more in written languages than in spoken languages.
A: I think in English, written and spoken words are used in the same way. 🤔 I can’t think of times when written and spoken words are different except for slang (like lol, imo, and so on)



“In buying a car, what points are important?”
“Buying” becomes a noun in this sentence. The “in” can be replaced with “about” or “when”. Sometimes, when the verb goes in the beginning, it becomes a noun (I will show you an example below)

This sentence can actually be flipped to “What points are important when buying a car?”
“buying” is a verb here so you use “when”

There are two visible differences about S1. “In buying a car, what points are important?” and S2. “While playing tennis, I injured my arm.”
1. In S1, it is general while S2 is specific. S1 talks about buying a car in general while S2 talks about something that happened to only you.
2. In S1, “buying” is a noun but in S2, “playing” is a verb.
However, you can change “playing tennis” into a noun —> “In tennis playing, the players get injured often.” (I had to change it to “the players...” because of difference 1)
