Reply to "“as may”"

Hi, Sarah,

To answer this question and with David's tacit permission, I will follow his wonderful explanation here:

  • It may all turn out to be transitory. The recent surge in inflation may turn out to be transitory, too.
  • It may all turn out to be transitory. The recent surge in inflation may, too.
  • It may all turn out to be transitory. So may the recent surge in inflation.
  • It may all turn out to be transitory, as may the recent surge in inflation.

Hi Gustavo,

I ran across another sentence which I think I can use David's explaination to analyse it, right?

“The decline of heavy manufacturing and the weakening of trade unions were part of this trend. So was the globalisation of capital and investment flows, which allowed businesses to shift production to countries with lower wage costs, such as post-communist eastern Europe and, critically, China.”[from The Economist]



The decline of heavy manufacturing and the weakening of trade unions were part of this trend. The globalisation of capital and investment flows was part of this trend, too.

The decline of heavy manufacturing and the weakening of trade unions were part of this trend. So was the globalisation of capital and investment flows.
