Chambers" Subject: Re: Too in initial position In Canada, we can use "as well" in initial position, as in He told Mary to be careful. As well, he asked all of us to help her. The phrase has the expected meaning "also, in addition," just as in sentence-internal or sentence-final position, and just as does sentence-initial "too" and "also". Al Gleason told me that sentence-initial "as well" is a Canadianism--he never saw it anywhere else. And I've promulgated it as that for the last 20 years. --Jack Chambers
