CONNECTORS: FURTHERMORE: meaning and examples

Good morning. Today we continue our series of Vitamins about CONNECTORS that are used to continue the same idea or give additional information. Today's connector is: furthermore It is used: to give additional information about something you have just said. It is a formal word and consequently, it is more usual in written English. An informal spoken equivalent of furthermore is What's more. Word position: Furthermore comma goes at the beginning of the sentence. Example 1 We were very dissatisfied with our hotel. Furthermore, the activities that the tour operator had promised us were inexistent. Example 2 The study showed that the conditions in Factory B were more precarious than Factory A. Furthermore, production was higher in Factory A than Factory B. Example 3 We've got tickets to the Springsteen concert! What's more, they're front-row tickets! I can't wait! Tomorrow we will look at a synonym of futhermore. Remember to post any questions about today's Daily Vitamin in the forum of the Daily Vitamin Plus! section on our website.
