how do you say "Refugees are humans too" in Japanese

Would it be なんみんも にんげんです。

(My Kanji is quite limited, so that's why I've written it in Hiragana)

  • In what context? Are you (speaking/writing/tweeting etc.) to (children/friends/boss/the public etc.)? – broccoli facemask - cloth Feb 10 '17 at 9:49

You are correct. You can say:

「なんみんもにんげん(だ/です/である)。」 or

「なんみんもまたにんげん(だ/です/である)。」

  • what's the difference between the two terms? i.e. what effects does また have? – Dania Chatila Feb 10 '17 at 4:57
  • ^ Dania, また adds emphasis on the 「も」"too/also/as well", and probably has a nuance of "equally"... and I think ~もまたにんげんだ sounds a bit more formal/literary than ~もにんげんだ – Chocolate Feb 11 '17 at 4:17
