Subject: initial too
Sorry I'm so far behind, but I wanted to get my $.02-worth in. Initial
'too' doesn't seem at all strange to me, though perhaps a little too
informal for written English. Isn't it interesting how varied our
perceptions on this feature have been? Others found it very formal.
I'll have to listen to myself for awhile, but intuition tells me it's
common in my own speech (Atlanta-born). Initial 'as well' is another
matter entirely. I'd mark that sentence with a star in a heartbeat!
