moreover is a synonym of furthermore

adverb [ mawr-oh-ver, mohr-, mawr-oh-ver, mohr- ]

moreover is another word for furthermore

The terms furthermore and moreover are both transition words, meaning they help connect one idea to another. What's more, they both indicate something additional to what has already been stated. Moreover adds emphasis to the idea that came before it, usually introducing something particular or important (not an afterthought). But neither of these terms is commonly used in speech where shorter, less formal options do the trick.
