Adverb

eventuell
The German word eventuell looks as though it should mean eventual or eventually, but it is a false friend which actually means possible, perhaps or maybe. So the phrase Ich werde eventuell auch mitspielen, wenn es nicht regnet could be rendered in English as I might play too, if it doesn't rain.
It is normally possible to translate the English eventual or eventually using schließlich or letztendlich . So the sentence You'll get used to it eventually could be translated as Du wirst dich letztendlich daran gewöhnen .
