    Using likewise as an adjunctive adverb.

    Hi,

    Is this use of the word "likewise" as an adjunctive adverb correct?

    She sings beautifully; likewise, she draws.

    Thanks.

    The adverb "likewise" is not natural there.

    Thanks.

    Could you please give me a compound sentence with the adjunctive adverb "likewise" preceded by semicolon?

    No, I'm not going to do that. If you have some examples, please post them.

    Re: Using likewise as an adjunctive adverb.

    I posted an example in the original post. I tried but I failed. I am trying to understand how that word is used.
    I went over the forum guidelines, and I found no problem in asking for an example for the sake of understanding.
