Not Only … But Also

Voiced by Amazon Polly

Dragoman expects its translators to use correlative conjunctions correctly.

The Oxford Dictionary of English Grammar defines a correlative as a pair of elements that join two similar parts of a phrase, clause, or sentence.

“Not only … but also” is one of the more frequently used correlative conjunctions that Dragoman translators use to translate Turkish copy into English.

What you have to keep in mind is that a verb that applies to both phrases must come right before “not only.”
