how about "overall"?
My thinking exactly, oltre = over, tutto = all
I think "furthermore" is a synonym of "besides" that works well in this instance, and more in line with "oltretutto." I have't tried it in Duo, but it should be accepted.
'Above all 'should be accepted in my view. If DL accepts moreover it
should also accept 'above all'.
I answered "What's more, it's too much." This response was marked incorrect, but I think it is perfectly acceptable. Can someone tell me why it isn't?
Because Duolingo has a limited range of accepted answers.
That's about the best answer I've seen yet on this site.
"overall" is a frequently used English word, shouldn't this be an accepted translation?
No, because it doesn't mean the same. Besides: by the way, also, moreover. Overall: collectively, in short. Oltretutto has the first meaning.
Agreed. "Overall" is closer to "in general" or "considered as a whole" than "besides" or "moreover".
A "false friend", not a cognate.
What about "above all"? It doesn't work if you are thinking "besides" or "also" but it is certainly in line with "moreover". It wasn't accepted but I'm on the fence about suggesting it. Any thoughts?
Moreover just means "in addition" while above all means "more important than all the rest." Not quite the same.
Yes, but moreover is a near-synonym of besides in English, and moreover (!) is shown as one of the hints in the definition of oltretutto.
I think "Above all it is too much" should be also accepted.
"otherwise, it is too much"
Why isn't "overall" accepted?
I think just "oltre" would work too.
What about this sentence?
-"In addition, it is too much."
Inoltre is better yet!
"In addition, it's too much." should be alright?
'Besides' is more a synonym of 'anyway'. Is that what the Italian means? Nothing to do with 'all'? Not 'altogether' or 'overall'? Any Italians who can clarify?
What about "after all"?
My answer: "besides it's too much" was marked wrong!!?? Because of a contraction?
Why it? I wanted too say 'Besides he is too much' and they marked me wrong. Why?
