Resolved questions
Correct sentence structure

Thank you very much again for your time and trouble in responding. I am however, still a little confused on the first sentence, as you both put forward very compelling grammatical arguments for different sentence structures.

Also, with regard to ‘außerdem’ – I wanted to begin my sentence with this word, so is this not grammatically correct? What then would be a correct word meaning ‘in addition’ that could be legitimately used to start a sentence.

Thank you
