    Please provide some examples of transitional phrases. (Perhaps I know it as something else.)

    Re: Transitional Phrases

    Hi,

    Here is a list of helpful transitional words and phrases:

    TO ADD, TO SHOW SEQUENCE:
    also, and, then, besides, equally important, finally, first, further, furthermore, in addition, in the first place, last, moreover, next, second

    TO COMPARE:
    in the same way, likewise, similarly

    To CONTRAST:
    although, and yet, but, but at the same time, despite, even so, even though, however, in contrast, in spite of, nevertheless, on the contrary, on the other hand, regardless, still, though, yet

    TO GIVE EXAMPLES and INTENSIFY:
    after all, an illustration of, for example, for instance, indeed, in fact, specifically, to illustrate

    To REPEAT, SUMMARIZE, or CONCLUDE:
    all in all, altogether, in brief, in conclusion, in other words, in particular, in short, in simpler terms, in summary, on the whole, therefore

    TO SHOW CAUSE or EFFECT
    accordingly, as a result, because, consequently, for this purpose, hence, otherwise, therefore, thus

    There are many others, but I am not even sure if that is what you are looking for. Let me know.

    Iza

    Thanks, Izabella! Now I know what the poster was talking about.

    That's quite a list. (I think I use "indeed" a lot.)

    :D

    It's certainly enough to be going on with.
