Two main usages of 又

Today we will discuss two main usages of 又

又 again

Yòu

又 is often used for events that have happened and it is often used together with 了, 再 is used for events that have not happened yet.

David has been to that restaurant before. Today he went to that restaurant again. He wants to go to that restaurant again next weekend.

大卫以前去过那家饭店,今天他又去了那家饭店,下个周末他想再去那家饭店。

Dà wèi yǐqián qùguò nà jiā fàndiàn, jīntiān tā yòu qùle nà jiā fàndiàn, xià gè zhōumò tā xiǎng zài qù nà jiā fàndiàn.

I called Jesse in the morning and I called him again in the afternoon.

上午我给杰西打了一个电话,下午我又给他打了一个电话。

Shàngwǔ wǒ gěi jié xī dǎle yīgè diànhuà, xiàwǔ wǒ yòu gěi tā dǎle yīgè diànhuà.

Yesterday I went to this restaurant, and today I went to this restaurant again.                  

昨天我去了这个饭馆,今天我又去了这个饭馆。

Zuótiān wǒ qùle zhège fànguǎn, jīntiān wǒ yòu qùle zhège fànguǎn.

I didn’t find his home last time, and I didn’t find his home again this time.

我上次没找到他家,这次又没找到他家。

Wǒ shàng cì méi zhǎodào tā jiā, zhè cì yòu méi zhǎodào tā jiā.

When we put two 又 together, it means “…both…and…”

又……又…… …both…and…

She is both beautiful and clever.

她又漂亮又聪明。
