    all

    Hi there,
    We have 'first of all', how about 'second of all' and 'third of all'?

    Why do people simply use 'secondly' or 'thirdly'?

    Thanks
    pete

    Re: all

    Pete,

    These are all possible:

    'first of all'
    'second of all'
    'third of all'

    These ones are shorter, more convenient:

    'secondly'
    'thirdly'
