    howver as conjunction

    Can 'however' be used as a conjunction after a comma, as in
    'It was an excellent movie and the special effects were amazing, however it was not as good as the original.'

    Re: howver as conjunction

    You will see it used that way, but many would say it is not right and 'however' should come after a full stop or a semi-colon.
