Writing Tip #38: Learn To Use Conjunctive Adverbs
Learn to use conjunctive adverbs. Conjunctive adverbs, as the name suggests, function simultaneously as conjunctions and adverbs. That means they connect sentence parts while modifying a verb. They are excellent transition words that not only link ideas, but also show the relationships among them. Common conjunctive adverbs include “however,” “therefore,” “moreover,” “instead,” “thus,” “meanwhile,” “consequently,” “likewise,” and “nonetheless.” If your writing tends to be choppy or if readers are not able to follow the flow of your ideas, try improving transition by adding appropriate conjunctive adverbs.
