Hi,

Don't worry, we'll get the money back somehow.

The definition of "somehow" in my dictionaries is "in some way". However, I think "in some way" is not a synonym, it's just a simple definition. In other words, I don't think I can use "in some way" instead of "somehow", but I'm not sure.

Don't worry, we'll get the money back, in some way.

So I think the only possible ways to express that are "somehow" and "one way or another".
What do you think?

Hi,

'In some way' sounds acceptable here to me.

'One way or another' is often, although not always, used to express a strong resolve and even a willingness to use unscrupulous methods. eg 'You swine, one day I'll get my revenge on you, one way or another!'

Ah, I thought it was not good. Maybe because I read somewhere that "in some way" is not a good substitute for "somehow", "someway" or "one way or another". So...

One day I'll succeed in using English like a native speaker, [somehow/one way or another/in some way/ someway]
I have to find the time to watch that TV series, [somehow/one way or another/in some way/ someway]
etc.
