Linking Words

Average: 3.9 (46 votes)

Linking words are something that can really help our fluency in English, as they help us to create longer sentences. For example:

I bought a dog.

I bought a dog because I really wanted a pet.

I bought a dog because I really wanted a pet. However, now I wish I hadn't!

Some linking words come in the middle of the sentence:
because
and
so
but
until
then

Etc.

Whereas some linking words join two sentences and often start with a capital letter:
However
Nevertheless
Therefore
In conclusion
To summarise

There are many more linking words! Including:
Whereas
While
In order to
Especially
Generally
For example
Unlike

And more and more and more!

In the following sentences, which linking words do you think complete the sentence?

i got them all right but i didn't get what nevertheless

More of Neverthless usage

A good exercise

We need to learn  more on the usage of Nevethless

Whenever I"d like to try Neverthless,I didn't succeed

Unless I grow confidence on English writing, I may continue to have this block
