Not only, but also

From Teflpedia

Not only, but also is an English lexical-grammatical structure.[1]

It's used to express two (or more) ideas - so is addition.

Starting with not only[edit]

To add emphasis, we can start with not only:

  • Not only


For good style, avoiding stylistic errors, Grammarly suggests using the similar elements in both clauses, i.e. parallelism, though this is not a grammatical requirement.[2]
