In other news; Learning how to use also and too correctly will get you closer to fluency!

ALSO How to Use It

“Also” is used in positive sentences, to show agreement or something in common.


Alice can join us. Helene can also join us.
Mahmoud speaks French. Renata also speaks French.
Leilani likes to read novels. She also likes to read poetry.
He is also becoming a teacher.
We were also there.


Where to Place It

         “Also” comes before a single action verb.

Renata also speaks French.
She also likes to read poetry.


Except… “Also” comes after a modal or “to be” verb, and before the infinitive.


We were also there.
Helene can alsojoin us.
He is alsobecoming a teacher.



TOO How to Use It

 a. “Too” is used in positive sentences, to show agreement. In most cases, the meaning is the same as “also”. However, you may notice something different about its place in the sentence.


Alice can join us. Helene can join us too.
Mahmoud speaks French. Renata speaks French too.
Leilani likes to read novels. She likes to read poetry too.
He is becoming a teacher too.
We were there too.


b. “Too” is used to modify adjectives. In a negative use, it means that something is a higher degree than is desirable of the adjective. In a positive or less strong use, it means very. This is a use that “also” doesn’t have.


My tea is too hot to drink.
One chair was too big, another was too small, but the third was just right.


Sometimes you can have too much of a good thing.
Thank you for your help, you’re too kind.


Where to Place It

 a. “Too” comes at the end of the sentence or phrase that it refers to.


Helene can join us too.
We were there too.


b. When used to modify an adjective, “too” comes before the adjective it modifies.


My tea is too hot to drink.
One chair was too big, another was too small
…you’re too kind


Hopefully this has helped clear up how to use too and also.

You posted this under "site announcements". The other poster's private message would not constitute a death threat. It is not germane to the site itself. (See Rule 3) 


I'd move for a thread deletion vote.

Well, it depends on the intent of the language being employed. Clearly the message was:

 

"You disrespected my children, and I would like to know where you live so I can show you personally how I treat such disrespect. I will have my 'magnum' with me. watch what you say."  (reworded, but similar message)

 

Now, no explicit threat was made, but the context alluded to that being the intent. It is sort of like saying, "I would like to take a trip to The White House to show The President of The United States how I feel about his policies with my Glock 17." vs. "I want to kill the President of The United States of America."  And, like the example provided, context is key here.

 So you comment on his pictures that they are not satanic enough and now you are crying about his PM to you where he is being about as satanic as it gets.

 

3. Stratification takes place organically here, all user disputes will be settled between users.

 

 You were bitching about the rules as it pertains to his pictures and here you break a rule. Hypocrite much Darryl.

 

 Good luck with that :)

Not very hard? Its also not very hard to understand that I was making a joke Announcing the first death threat on CoD. I keep asking myself why it is that you leave the Announcement thread open to the public if you don't want anyone posting in it. You might change it to admin only or something.

and now you are crying about

No Tim, and I am about sick of this statement. You, FS, Sammie, and others use this as a copout on nearly every thread. "Oh look what hurt your feelings" or "look at you cry". What are you talking about? Its funny so I shared it. Is this the new thing now? You dont have to generate any content of your own, rather you all just sit back and wait for something to happen, and accuse them of crying.

Yes Darryl it is crying, tell yourself anything you wish but it is still going to be crying...

Right. So no matter what I say, you ignore it, and call it crying, seemingly because its easier than answering to what I actually said, and because you know better than I what I actually intended to say...

Are you crying about my point Darryl?   You have no points Darryl and if I was ignoring you I would not reply to your crying now would I ?????

This is all you have Tim, the weak idea that if you continue to say that I am crying it will somehow get under my skin. Well, it doesn't.

You serve as fine evidence that CoD is just another SIN. Id like to thank you for all the fine lhp content you have generated, and for the thought provoking post you have shared.

 Well Darryl you seem to have this weak idea that you have said anything of value on the CoD as well or anywhere for that matter. The fact that you seem to believe that by your abundance of crap you pot that is what makes you someone on the LHP is amusing imo.

 

  Anything else?
