What does なおも mean in the following sentence?

夜の十一時を過ぎるというのに、街は下品な化粧を塗りたくり、なおも喧騒に溢れていた 。

Can't find a definition on jisho.

    Or here in slightly more detail. Once you get to a level where you can start reading sentences like the one above, you should really consider reaching for a 国語辞典 first.

"In addition to that" is the best meaning for that in that sentence.

夜の十一時を過ぎるというのに、なおも喧騒に溢れていた 。

なおも=still

When I put なおも喧騒 into google translate it says: "still noisy", so I take it to mean "still." Best I could find.

  • Your interpretation is correct. なおも generally means "still". Possible synonyms would include いまだに, 依然として, etc.
