How to use aussi with a verb

Where do I find the rule about inserting "aussi" into a sentence, such as "She also used pieces of plastic." ?

Bonjour Kathleen,

Thank you for excellent question.

When ‘aussi’ is an adverb (as in meaning ‘also / too’ or ‘in addition’) it is placed following the word (verb / noun) it is referring to:

Sophie viendra aussi = Sophie will come too

Antoine est venu et Sophie aussi = Antoine came and Sophie too

Le nouveau budget prévoit une réduction d’impôts. Il prévoit aussi une augmentation de salaire = the new budget provides for a tax reduction. It also (in addition) provides for a salary increase

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée!

What about compound tenses? Can you say "Antoine est aussi venu"? Or is it just "Antoine est venu aussi"?

Bonjour Stephanie,

Antoine est aussi venu = Antoine came too

Antoine est venu aussi = Antoine came too -> familiar / everyday 

 

Attention: here it is a conjunction not an adverb (implies a consequence or an explanation)

Aussi, il est venu = as such (as a consequence) he came 

 

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !
