Hello,

Can anyone explain if we can leave the word "else" in the sentence below and yet not change the meaning:

"Being excited about the final match, she could barely focus on anything else."

"Being excited about the final match, she could barely focus on anything."

Thanks

Hello guys,

It would be better to get feedback from experts. But, this is my take on it.

I think 'else' is important here as it signifies the meaning 'in addition or other than'.

she could barely focus on any thing else (other than the match)
she could barely focus on anything (including the match)

The meaning difference in these two questions seem clearer:

Did she buy anything?
Did she buy anything else?

Your post would have made whatever explanation that I was going to offer...err..redundant :)
