I am not sure "why", but it seems to me that some native speakers object to this use of "also". I have been told that when you utilize "also" at the beginning of a sentence it suggests that your writing is just a list!Is it OK to put "also" in the beginning of a sentence?
A Dictionary of Modern English Usage - Henry Watson Fowleralso. The word is an adverb, & not a conjunction ; nevertheless, it is often used in the latter capacity where and (also), but also, or as well as, would be in place. In talk, where the informal stringing on of after-thoughts is legitimate, there is often no objection to this; & the deliberate afterthought may appear similarly in print; But it is the writer's ordinary duty to settle up with his after-thoughts before he writes his sentence, & consequently the unassisted also that is proper to the after-thought gives a slovenly air to its sentence.
I wasn't aware of of what Fowler said back then, but I agree with his advice. An afterthought is an afterthought, so whether you begin your thought with an adverb or any other part of speech, it's your own affair. It's a case of putting your thoughts into writing as they occur to you, rather than crafting your written work carefully.Hello Veli,
Thanks for your contribution.
Please note that "also" could only be used as an adverb. It is not a conjunction.
