    Dear all,

    Could you tell me what is the difference between 'therefore' and 'thereby'?

    Also, could you provide some examples to illustrate the difference?

    Thank you very much ^^

    Let us take your problem;

    I wanted to know the difference between two English expressions and therefore started a thread in the forum to get an answer.

    I received only one answer and thereby was unable to fully understand the difference.

    I hope this helps.
