Although this won't be the last time that you learn about the particle も, this lesson will introduce you to its most important usages.
も means "also/too". も isn't used with が or は. をも is old-fashioned, so just use も. However, you will see をも in slightly old-fashioned literature, documents, set phrases, and what not. Again, similar to は, it emphasizes lack in negative sentences. も often just softens the tone.
The weather's good, too.
I'm hungry too.
To not move even a centimeter.
There's rain in Tokyo and in Kyoto.
What a success, it was a great success.
That computer doesn't even cost 50,000 yen.
Wording Note: This explicitly states cost (purchasing, repair, etc.). あのコンピューターは五万円もしない doesn't.
I have many books.
Grammar Note: 何＋counter + も ＝ many. 何十 + counter + も ＝ tens (~dozens).
I waited at least/about five hours.
Particle Note: も here implies perhaps a much longer wait. も emphasizes the amount.
Practice: Translate the following in polite speech.
1. I am a student. He is also a student.
