    as well ass VS similarly vs correspondingly

    Which of them? I think all of them could be correct.

    Tourism brings much needed money to developing countries. ......, it provides employment.
    1. as well as
    2. similarly
    3. correspondingly

    Re: as well ass VS similarly vs correspondingly

    I am not a teacher.

    1. is definitely wrong.

    2. and 3. are grammatically correct, but I don't like them.

    You might want to edit the 'ass' in the thread title.

    What's wrong with as well as?

    'As well as' means 'in addition to'.

    Re: as well ass VS similarly vs correspondingly

    I like 'furthermore' and 'moreover'.

    None of the given alternatives is natural, and they should all begin with a capital letter as they follow a full stop (period).

    The presence of the comma precludes the use of 'as well as'.

    Re: as well ass VS similarly vs correspondingly

    Tourism brings much needed money as well as many employments to developing countries.

    Is it correct?
