[Vocabulary] 게다가

게다가 (ge-da-ga) – besides, furthermore, moreover

게다가 has exactly the same meaning as other transitional/coordinating conjunction words like 그리고, 그외에도, 또한, and a few more.

But this word can be considered as a more elegant word to use. Or you can use this in your speech or writing if you are caught in a position where you’ve used 그리고 one too many times.

Just remember that the same rule applies to 게다가 – it is used to add on another point to the preceding sentence or statement.
