Back again with another question about で in this sentence:
Which supposedly translates to "You just missed Ami as she went out."
From my understanding of で, it may serve three functions:
- To indicate the location where an action is happening
- To indicate means
- Used as a conjunction to connect clauses
However, I seem to be confused with this one, since it modifies 入れ違い which does not seem to fit the functions listed.
Or I guess it may be (1) since it sort of says where the action is happening (i.e. while they're passing by), but I'm not too confident.
Is my understanding of it correct?
