What's the difference between "also" and "as well"? Is the difference just in that fact that as well is often used in the end of a sentense?


I have a pencil. Also I have a rubber.

I have a pencil. I have a rubber as well.

My best guess is it's a matter of personal taste. To my ears "as well" gives a sense of comparison and equality. "Also" gives me a sanse of addition and overloading.
