Transition words


 There are many transition words in English.

What are transitions and how are they used?


1. Transitions are phrases or words used to connect one idea to the next.
2. They are used by the author to help the reader progress from one significant idea to the next.
3. These words also show the relationship within a paragraph (or within a sentence) between the main idea and the support the author gives for those ideas.
4. Different transitions do different things.

Transitions may be "Additive," "Adversative," (expressing opposition or antithesis) "Causal," or "Sequential."


1. Additive Transitions

Addition
Introduction
Reference
Similarity
Identification
Clarification

2. Adversative
Transitions

Conflict
Emphasis
Concession
Dismissal
Replacement

3. Causal (not casual)
Transitions

Cause/Reason
Effect/Result
Purpose
Consequence

4. Sequential
Transitions

Numerical
Continuation
Conclusion
Digression
Resumption
Summation

Additive Transitions:
These show addition, introduction, similarity to other ideas, &c.

Addition:

indeed,   further,   as well (as this),   either (neither),   not only (this) but also (that) as well,
also,   moreover,   what is more,   as a matter of fact,   in all honesty,
and,   furthermore,   in addition (to this),   besides (this),   to tell the truth,
or,   in fact,   actually,   to say nothing of,   
too,   let alone,   much less   additionally,   
nor,   alternatively,   on the other hand,   not to mention (this).

Introduction:

 such as,    as,    particularly,    including,    as an illustration,
 for example,    like,    in particular,    for one thing,    to illustrate
 for instance,    especially,    notably,    by way of example.

 speaking about (this),    considering (this),    regarding (this),    with regards to (this),
 as for (this),    concerning (this),   the fact that
  on the subject of (this).

Similarity:

 similarly,    in the same way,    by the same token,     in a like manner,
 equally   likewise.

Identification:

 that is (to say),    namely,    specifically,    thus.

Clarification:

that is (to say),   I mean,   (to) put (it) another way   in other words.

Adversative Transitions:
These transitions are used to signal conflict, contradiction concession, dismissal, &c.

Conflict:

 but,    by way of contrast,    while,    on the other hand,
 however,    (and) yet,    whereas,   though (final position),
 in contrast,    when in fact,    conversely,    still.

Emphasis:

 even more,    above all,    indeed,    more importantly,    besides.

Concession:

 but even so,    nevertheless,    even though,    on the other hand,    admittedly,
 however,    nonetheless,    despite (this),    notwithstanding (this),    albeit
 (and) still,    although,    in spite of (this),    regardless (of this),   
 (and) yet,    though,    granted (this),    be that as it may.

Dismissal:

 either way,    whichever happens,    in either event,    in any case,    at any rate,
 in either case,    whatever happens,    all the same,    in any event.

Replacement:

 (or) at least,    (or) rather,    instead.

Causal Transitions:
These transitions signal cause/effect and reason/result, &c.

Cause/Reason:

 for the (simple) reason that,    being that,    for,    in view of (the fact),   inasmuch as,
 because (of the fact),    seeing that,    as,    owing to (the fact),   
 due to (the fact that),    in that    since,    for as much as.

Condition:

 on (the) condition (that),    granted (that),    if,    provided that,    in case,
 in the event that,    as/so long as,    unless    given that,   
 granting (that),    providing that,    even if,    only if.

Effect/Result:

 as a result (of this),    consequently,    hence,    for this reason,    thus,
 because (of this),    in consequence,    so that,    accordingly   
 as a consequence,    so much (so) that,    so,    therefore.

Purpose:

 for the purpose of,    in the hope that,    for fear that,    so that,
 with this intention,    to the end that,    in order to,    lest
 with this in mind,    in order that,    so as to,    so.

Consequence:

 under those circumstances,    then,    in that case,    if not,
 that being the case,    if so,    otherwise.

Sequential Transitions:
These transitions are used to signal a chronological or logical sequence.

before (this),   afterwards,   after (this),   then.

Conclusion:

to conclude (with)   as a final point,   eventually,   at last,   in the end,   finally,   lastly,

 to get back to the point,    to resume    anyhow,    anyway,     at any rate,
 to return to the subject.

Summation:

as was previously stated,   so,   consequently,   in summary,   all in all,
thus,   as I have said,   to sum up,   overall,
as has been mentioned,   then,   to summarize,   to be brief,   briefly,
given these points,   in all,   on the whole,   therefore,   
as has been noted,   hence,   in conclusion,   in a word,   
to put it briefly,   in sum,   altogether,   in short.

It is interesting, because it's a part of the grammar (in this case -- the English grammar), but your post isn't useful and it hasn't some informative value. Bot (and bot-like) comments are not welcome here. If we wish, we may produce thousands of them, but we don't need it. We need natural, normal, human, unique comments. Next bot/bot-like comment will lead to ban.
I'm so good at SEO!
