Lance" Subject: Re: Too in initial position I have vague recollections of English teachers "correcting" me for using initial 'too' as we use initial 'also' and 'and', followed by a comma as in Grepstad's example. I checked several style handbooks, thinking that there was a stylistic "rule" inveighing against the usage, but didn't find one. This usage, to my ear and eye, is common in spoken style (I suspect in any variety of English) but is considered too informal for most written styles. These "rules" in style books exist because native speakers of the language actually do use the forms in questions, of course. DMLance, U of Missouri
