Also/ too/ as well= auch?

The word ‘auch’ in German, is an adverb that means ‘also’, ‘too’ and ‘as well’. Although these adverbs in English have their specific place in a sentence, in German this word doesn’t. The position of ‘auch’ in a sentence can totally change the meaning of that sentence.
For example:
‘Ich war auch da’ (I was there too)
‘Auch, Ich war da’ (Also, I was there)
Can you think of any other example? :heart: :arrow_down:

Willst du mir auch den geben? (Do you want tpo give me that one as well?)

Willst auch du mir den geben? ( Do you too want to give me that one?)

One time the “auch” refers to the THAT.
The other time to YOU.
