    Hello,

    I am at the beginning of my Spanish classes. I've just learned a new word - además. I wonder, what is the origin of this word. Is it just "a de mas" chattered to ademas like it is so with "another" (according to Oxford)?
    If so, what does it mean? Additionally? Would it be correct to say that "ademas" literally means "as a plus"?

    Thanks in advance,
    EH

    P.S.: I am from Russia and do not have an English-Spanish dictionary at hand.

    Hmm, so it's close to 'moreover'. Correct? Or am I getting it wrong?

    Thanks!
