Synonyms of "Way" and their differences

Q: I spend way too much time watching movies. ve I spend way too much time ON watching movies. arasındaki fark nedir?
A: They're pretty much the same! You can omit "on" or leave it in, doesn't really matter. In natural conversation, I would be more likely to use the first one.
Q: a way ve a means ve a resort arasındaki fark nedir?
A: A "way" is like ”方”. It's a method of doing something. There can be a lot of these for one thing you do.
A "means" is a method by which something is possible.
A "resort" is a way, but one that you don't want to use. It's generally bad.

You really want to find a "way" to travel more. You could work longer hours, and be paid more for that; you could ask for a raise; or you could beg your family for money. You obviously don't want to do the last one, but the first two don't work, so you "resort" to begging for money.

For "means", I like to use criminal justice. In a trial, you need to prove that the suspect had means, motive, and opportunity to commit the crime.
Motive: a reason.
Opportunity: there was a time they could have committed the crime.
Means: that they were physically able to commit the crime.
Q: No way! ve You're kidding! (Are you kidding?) arasındaki fark nedir?
A: No way is when you can't believe something is true or when you refuse to do something. "No way, that can't be true!" "Will you do the dishes for me?" "No way!".

You're kidding is similar but it's specifically for when you are shocked or in disbelief.
"I heard Mr Smith cheated on his wife".
"You're kidding!"
Q: by the way ve just so you know arasındaki fark nedir?
A: I'm sure you know the literal meanings of the two phrases. Their difference is simply that they have different literal meanings. 😄
Q: By the way ve Anyway arasındaki fark nedir?
A: You use "by the way" when you need to add in something that is a little new to the conversation.
- "Are you traveling to France next month?"
- "Yes. By the way, I need to borrow your French phrasebook."
(You can also use "and" instead of "by the way")

You use "anyway" to change the topic.
- "I went to the Louvre, then I saw the Eiffel Tower. Paris was so beautiful! Anyway, let's talk about your vacation now. I heard you went to Italy."
