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 introducing new information to the topic the speaker is talking about, as an afterthought. While it's not the most challenging grammar structure, an important thing to keep in mind is that 还有 normally starts a completely new sentence or clause.

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.

⋯⋯ ,还有 ,⋯⋯
