「おまけに」の情報

()けに is a phrase which often functions as a conjunction between the (A) and (B) parts of a sentence in order to show that (B) is 'in addition to (A)'.
This structure stems from the common use of the noun お()け which indicates a 'discount' or 'freebie' that is added in addition to the base of (A). Despite お()け itself primarily being used for positive things ()けに may convey 'in addition', 'on top of that', or 'what's more' regardless of whether the original topic is a good thing or not. However, (A) and (B) will always either be both good things, or both bad things, never a mixture of both.
Being a combination of お()け and に, this phrase will appear either at the beginning of a new sentence, or at the beginning of a second clause of a 2-part sentence.
  • 今日(きょう)仕事(しごと)遅刻(ちこく)して部長(ぶちょう)(おこ)られたし、おまけに取引先(とりひきさき)(ひと)(おこ)らせちゃったから、今日(きょう)最悪(さいあく)()だったよ。
    Today was one of the worst days because I got yelled at by my boss for being late to work, and to make it worse, I upset one of our clients.
  • 昨日(きのう)彼氏(かれし)美味(おい)しいご(はん)をご馳走(ちそう)してもらって、おまけにプレゼントまでもらった。
    Yesterday, my boyfriend treated me to a delicious dinner and on top of that he even gave me a gift.
  • パソコンが全然(ぜんぜん)()()がらない。おまけにスマホの充電(じゅうでん)がないから仕事(しごと)全然(ぜんぜん)できない。
    My computer won't turn on. To make matters worse, my smartphone is out of battery, so I can't work at all.
Fun-fact - An important distinction between phrases like それに and ()けに is that ()けに keeps its original meaning of (B) being some kind of 'bonus'. What this means is that whatever the speaker is trying to convey, (A) by itself is enough to meet some specific qualifications, and (B) is just adding 'insult to injury', or 'icing on the cake', depending on whether it is a good or a bad thing.

    What is the difference between おまけに and また?

    Hey @Hadros232232 !

    おまけに has a nuance that the thing that is ‘additional’ is either good or bad for the speaker, and is used to describe how the ‘additional’ thing makes the situation better or worse. It is also used to add additional information that does not necessarily relate to the topic that was mentioned previously. Due to this, it is used in casual conversations. However, また does not have any feelings or the nuance of ‘to make matters worse’ to it, so it is used to add additional information about the same topic that was mentioned before.

    We hope that this answers your question!

    The answer for the sentence 「頼まれた仕事を一生懸命やったら、____ お菓子もくれた。」is おまけに.

    What’s confusing, though, is that the hint is “on top of that,” suggesting (at least to me) that the answer could be 上に or その上. Any advice?
