    Re: Hence V thus

    If you paraphrase therefore, so, thus and hence, they come something like 'as a result of this', 'in this way', 'from this it follows', and so on.
    adv 1: (used to introduce a logical conclusion) from that fact or
    reason or as a result; "therefore X must be true";
    "the eggs were fresh and hence satisfactory"; "we were
    young and thence optimistic"; "it is late and thus we
    must go"; "the witness is biased and so cannot be
    trusted" [syn: therefore, thence, thus]
    2: (archaic) from this place; "get thee hence!"
    3: from this time; "a year hence it will be forgotten"

    hence - definition from
