CONNECTORS: MOREOVER: meaning and examples

Good morning. Yesterday we learned that furthermore was a formal connector used to give additional information. We also learned the expression What's more, which is an informal spoken equivalent to furthermore. Today's connector is: moreover 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 moreover is What's more. As you can see, moreover has the same meaning and use as furthermore. Word position: Moreover comma goes at the beginning of the sentence. Example 1 London offers a wide variety of museums and galleries. Moreover, many of them are free or only require a small donation from the visitor. Example 2 Money was not the most important factor in determining job satisfaction. Moreover, many workers said that they would prefer to earn less if they could find a job that was motivating. We hope that this week of CONNECTORS FOR GIVING ADDITIONAL INFORMATION has been useful for you. We will look at other kinds of CONNECTORS in future Vitamins. You don't have to learn all of the connectors in these and future Daily Vitamins, but knowing 2 or 3 of each type can help make your English more sophisticated. Remember to post any questions about today's Daily Vitamin in the forum of the Daily Vitamin Plus! section on our website. Moreover, you can contact us if you have any questions about how to use the Daily Vitamin Plus! section. Enjoy your weekend!
