I am a student. I live in Puerto Rico. My main language is Spanish. I am doing my English task and am confused.

What is a 'transition word'?
What is a 'linking sentence'?

A transition word is, I think, a word that links one sentence to another. Examples:

  • however
    therefore
    nevertheless

Your English is, I think, quite good. It is easy to understand you.

I think with your second question you might be referring to dependent clause, which needs to be linked to another clause (independent clause) before it can have meaning.

There are two basic ways of linking clauses in English: coordinating and subordinating. The coordinating conjunctions are and, but, for, nor, or, so, and yet. The subordinating conjunctions are after, although, as, if, since, that, while, and so forth.

Does that help?
