    Petition against the double negatives!

    It's useful to know the non-standard English as well, as it is the real English you hear every day!

    Thanks! Do you really need a comma before 'as'?

    In this context.

    1. I like tennis as well as football.

    But:

    2. I like tennis as well, as it is a fun sport.

    In 1. "as well as" is one unit meaning "in addition to"
    In 2. it is "as well" = also, and then "as it is...." = "because it is"

    In 2 "as well" and "as" are separate, and therefore need a comma to avoid confusion.

    It gets used more with 'well' infront of it, but that makes it even more gramatically incorrect.
    You mean "well chuffed"?

    I've never heard it like that before and it's a really common slang word.
    Yes, "Well chuffed" is what I hear most.

    I think it's mainly used in Britain, I've never heard any Americans use it in text but then again that was the first time I saw it in text, I only really hear it in speech on the streets and when I went to highschool.
    Please correct any Russian language mistakes I make.
