Если не ошибаюсь, Uly M. когда-то написал, что moreover видел только у русских. 😁

Улий 🐝added a comment 17 days ago

Yep. Russians love that word. Here, we consider it a legal word - you see in court transcripts, contract and here in on shows with lawyers.

Улий 🐝added a comment 17 days ago

FURTHERMORE is an angry word usually. [father] "You came home drunk again last night. Enough is enough. You're grounded for two weeks - and that includes no driving - your mother or I will drive you to and from school. Furthermore, that includes no visits from your girlfriend!" When it's not angry, it's still an extremely formal word. It's more natural to use WHAT'S MORE -or- IN FACT.

Улий 🐝added a comment 17 days ago

ADDITIONALLY is a great word - especially in emails. You don't often hear it in speech, but it's quite useful in writing.

Улий 🐝added a comment 17 days ago

COUPLED WITH is best used in the middle of a sentence combining two elements that contribute somehow to some outcome or situation: "Tatiana's eagerness to learn new words and phrases, coupled with the humility to accept correction and instruction, have resulted in an enviable command of the English language."

Вчера ты опять пришёл (домой) пьяный. Ну всё, меня) хватит. Ты под домашним арестом на две недели, и за руль ты не сядешь - на учёбу и обратно будет возить тебя либо мать, либо я. Да, и вот что ещё - чтобы девушки твоей тоже здесь не было!

Улий 🐝added a comment 17 days ago

AGAIN is used at the beginning of the sentence in order to reiterate something that has been previously stated. However, care must be taken not to use it unless it's absolutely warranted (like when you want to reiterate an apology), otherwise it can sound preachy and pedantic: [student] A: Sir, can I throw this bottle in this red bin?" [teacher] "Again, plastic goes in red bin and glass goes in the BLUE bin. I thought I made that clear last week." [= the teacher sounds frustrated, or is maybe just a dick]

Улий 🐝added a comment 17 days ago

CORRESPONDINGLY... yeah... you should promise yourselves never to repeat this horror again))

Улий 🐝added a comment 17 days ago

INDEED is ok as a one word response meaning THAT'S CORRECT! But using it at the beginning of a sentence will only make you sound Shakespearean and snotty.

Улий 🐝added a comment 17 days ago

IDENTICALLY - see CORRESPONDINGLY above

Улий 🐝added a comment 17 days ago

SIMILARLY is an excellent word. Use it in writing since it can sound a bit stiff in conversation. Instead use BY THE SAME TOKEN in speech.

Улий 🐝added a comment 17 days ago

WHEREAS is best used between two elements in order to compare the latter to the former: "Tatiana's English has improved by leaps and bounds over the past two years, whereas other users have not improved in the least."

Улий 🐝added a comment 17 days ago

Да, и вот что еще... I love it!!

Tatiana Gerasimenkoadded a comment 17 days ago

For no one to be envious/jelous: "Tatiana's English has improved by leaps and bounds over the past two years, whereas other users have not improved in the least." was just an example.😉

Улий 🐝added a comment 17 days ago

An example that happens to be true.

Улий 🐝added a comment 17 days ago

Yes, that was just an example with Tatiana. But there are other users who have made considerable strides their English and continue to work hard at it like Alex, Grumbler, Zoya, PaddingtonBear and so many others. All of you keep up the good work!

Hello, Uly!
Could you please explain what is wrong with the word "correspondingly" that you have even used the word "horror" to denote your negative relation?

Tatiana Gerasimenkoadded a comment 15 days ago

Можно я попробую угадать? Да просто потому что его (почти) не используют.

Улий 🐝added a comment 15 days ago

I tried to think of an example and I can’t even imagine a context, written or spoken, in which I’d use it.

Alexander Аkimovadded a comment 15 days ago

That’s because you’re not a Russian.

Tatiana Gerasimenkoadded a comment 15 days ago

Я не сомневаюсь, что сейчас появится знаток, или даже не один и, абсолютно уверенный, что умнее всех, напишет кучу примеров. Хочешь с correspondingly, а хочешь с identically. Если что, Гугл поможет. ))

danilka255 .added a comment 15 days ago

Uly,
Thank you for the explanation.
Could you please suggest a word that would be most appropriate for the situation, when I explained something to other people, then used the word "correspondingly" in order to introduce a new idea as a result of my previous explanation?

Улий 🐝added a comment 15 days ago

Yes, you can use BY THE SAME TOKEN

danilka255 .added a comment 14 days ago

I think "by the same token" slightly differs from the meaning of the word I am trying to find. It is more about the logical conclusion of what have been explained. Would it be appropriate to use the words "consequently" or "by inference"?

Улий 🐝added a comment 14 days ago

Yes, you’re right. CONSEQUENTLY would be the right word.

danilka255 .added a comment 14 days ago

Thank you for replies and your time!
