Example sentences with phrase in bold:

It's really quite enthralling I might add.

It's really quite enthralling might I add.

It's really quite enthralling might I add you.

I've heard all three used, but which is correct?

I have heard both "I might add", and "might I add". Strangely, I've only heard the latter when the speaker is contradicting, or expressing indignation about, what they have just heard. In contrast I've heard "I might add" being used in the same way that one might see "moreover", or "furthermore" being used in a piece of writing.

  • I believe the construction of moving the verb to the front of a sentence ( both are restatements of "I might add it's really quite enthralling") turns it into a question, in this case a question you are answering by going right ahead and adding your point.
