Confusing Word Use: Moreover

buzz this


In essays, moreover is used as an alternative to however. But be careful here. It does not have the same meaning. Moreover is the very formal equivalent of furthermore or in addition which would be the least formal of these three. These adverbs should be used to support or to add information to what has already been said:

  • The refugees are desperately short of food. They have very little shelter to protect them from the winter winds that are now blowing. Furthermore, they are desperately in need of medical supplies.

  • She had noticed that there was a man sitting in the second row of the stalls to her right who was observing her, rather than watching the play. Moreover, he seemed to be smiling at her as if he recognised her.
