Expressing "in addition" with "haiyou"

(Redirected from ASGHQRI1)

还有 (háiyǒu) is used to express "in addition..." or "and also..." in a conversation. It is for introducing new information as an afterthought.

Structure

It's as simple as using 还有 before the new clause or sentence. 还有 can also be used with a comma, similar to how we can say "in addition..." in English.
