About も又

When used adverbially, the grouping of も and (また) 'once again', or 'also' will indicate that 'in addition to (A), (B)', or 'also with (A), (B)'. This structure appears after nouns, or noun-like phrases and simply emphasizes that something important needs to be considered about (A).
  • 高橋(たかはし)さんが提案(ていあん)したアイディアはいいのですが田中(たなか)さんが提案(ていあん)したことを実行(じっこう)するの(また)、いい(かんが)えだと(おも)います。
    The idea suggested by Takahashi-san is good, but I also think it's a good idea to implement what Tanaka-san suggested.
  • カレーは(あま)くても美味(おい)しいけど、(から)いのもまた美味(おい)しいんだよ。
    Curry is good even if it's sweet, but spicy curry is also good.
  • 先生(せんせい)になるには知識(ちしき)がたくさん必要(ひつよう)です。ですが、経験(けいけん)必要(ひつよう)なの(また)(たし)かだ。
    Being a teacher requires a lot of knowledge. However, experience is also necessary.
  • 明日(あした)もまた(おな)時間(じかん)にここにきてね!
    Please come here again at the same time tomorrow!
The noun or noun-phrase that もまた is connected to will be interpreted to be the primary point of a statement, regardless of any contrasting opinion that is given within a sentence. Additionally, もまた will primarily appear in hiragana, and may be thought of simply as a stronger version of も.
