Where do we use such as in a sentence?
Here’s an example of such as used correctly with a comma in a sentence: In this forest, you’ll see many types of coniferous trees, such as pine and spruce. The phrase such as pine and spruce is nonrestrictive, so you need a comma. How can you tell it’s nonrestrictive?
Does as mean because?
As is used to mean because, but it is also used when two events happen at the same time. In “I must stop now as I have to go out.” it means because, but in “She watched him as the train passed close to his house.” it doesn’t mean because. As for the sentences you used as examples, both are correct.
Which too means also?
To is a preposition with several meanings, including “toward” and “until.” Too is an adverb that can mean “excessively” or “also.” Just to be clear: two is pronounced the same as to and too, but it can’t be used instead of either of them because it’s a number.
What is a nonrestrictive clause?
A nonrestrictive clause adds additional information to a sentence. It is usually a proper noun or a common noun that refers to a unique person, thing, or event. It uses commas to show that the information is additional. The commas almost act like parentheses within the sentence.
Is such a conjunction?
‘As such’ also acts as a conjunction but is different grammatically. The Macquarie Dictionary defines ‘as such’ to mean ‘being what is indicated’, ‘in that capacity’ or ‘in itself or themselves’. ‘Such’ in the phrase ‘as such’ acts as a pronoun (a part of speech used in the place of a noun).
Is it correct to say and also?
Although the addition of “also” after “and” is often verbose, the two words do not mean quite the same thing. And is a conjunction. It joins words, phrases and clauses. Also is an adverb meaning “in the same manner, in addition, as well.” It’s useful when some sort of contrast is wanted.
Are also and too interchangeable?
In conversation both words, too and also, are used interchangeably with the sense of “in addition”: Our friends went too. Our friends went also. In such a sentence the too at the end is felt to be more natural than the also.
