How to use the: Noun + も

Example sentences:

Mr. Yamada likes to read books. Me too

3. 昨日忙しくて寝る時間もありませんですた。
Kinō iso gashikute neru jikan mo arima sende suta.

“も” has the same function as “は”, “が”, so it is not adjacent to “は”, “が” when used for a subject.

で/ と/ へ/ など も~
Kyūjit sude suga, doko e moi ikemasen.
Holidays like that but not going anywhere.
