    Wink for that matter

    I would like to ask if I have got the meaning of the expression "for that matter" (as far as is concerned)
    I am eating sushi now, raw fish, for that matter.
    She has been studying hard. Ten hours a day for that matter.
    He was not an English native speaker; for that matter, he was from France. He might have made several mistakes.

    For that matter, I am not a native speaker either.
    Is there another expression or synonim that means the same?
    Thanks in advance

    "For that matter" and "as a matter of fact" are synonymous and they are almost interchangeable but there are subtle differences and it depends on the context of the preceding sentences.

    I am eating sushi now, raw fish, for that matter.

    EX. Q. "Do you like sushi?" A. "Yes, I'm eating sushi now, as a matter of fact"

    "Sushi is Japanese." "Yes, but for that matter so are many other good dishes"

    She must study hard if she is to pass the test. She has been studying hard. Ten hours a day as a matter of fact. For that matter, she always studies hard.

    He was not an English native speaker; as a matter of fact, he was from France. He might have made a mistake; for that matter he might have made several mistakes.


    He is not a native speaker and for that matter, I am not a native speaker either. GOOD

    Is there another expression or synonim that means the same?

    Hello maramaras! I hope I have not confused you and you are able to see the slight differences and the way each phrase fits better in a given sentence.
