Talk:as well

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

I've heard that using "as well" at the beginning of sentences is a Canadianism. Can anybody testify as to its use outside of Canada (as it is most certainly used in Canada), and is this use different enough for its own definition separate from the first? --Bran

I've a lot of Canadian relatives, but I'm not sure what you're talking about. Can you give a couple example please? (Not "As well as" but only "As well"?) --Connel MacKenzie 02:14, 19 October 2007 (UTC)
One that I heard not too long ago: "Canada joined the war a week after Britain and France. As well, Canada promised that it would have a smaller role to play than in WWI." I've heard many people use it this way. --User:Bran 17:27, 1 December 2007 (UTC)
