    Linking words


     

    Here are more Linking Words, for your 'survival' to add to those we've already seen together test. Let me remind you once again that you can go further, if you fancy it, learning or revising the notions that these connectors are expressing test. They are precious tools, enabling you to make more complex statements adding clarity to your words. 

         

                              

     

     In short/ In a word 

     : in summary/ stated briefly

     / in a few words.

     

     Mind you, 

     : used in speech to stress a statement

     contradicting a preceding statement  

     Moreover

     : in addition to what has been said

     / further/ besides. 

     On the contrary  : in opposition to what has been stated
      On the one hand...  : used to introduce the first item to be presented... 
     ... On the other hand  : ... opposes an item that has just been introduced...  
     On the whole  : everything considered, in general. 
     Otherwise : under other circumstances
     Still  : yet/ nevertheless
     That's to say : in other words/  
     Therefore  : consequently
     Though/ although  : in spite of/ even though/ though
     Thus : accordingly/ as a result
     To sum up  : to express in a brief statement/ to summarise
     Unless  : except under the circumstances that...
     Unlike  : contrary to... 
     Yet : nevertheless

     

                                 

                Moreover                                       "I think, therefore I am..."

     

     A FEW EXAMPLES:

     - He doesn't work regularly... Mind you, his results are good.

    - Tom was wearing shorts. Moreover, he had no tie and couldn't get into the Casino.

    - My week was difficult, but on the whole, I think the results of it are satisfactory.

    - I see my neighbour all the time although I've never spoken to him.

    - Patrick is ill today, therefore he won't take his exam.

    He has lied, stolen and burgled the house next door: to sum up, he'll be arrested.

    - Unlike his brother, he has never smoked a cigarette or a cigar.


                           

                                Let's hope for it... 

     

    I'm sure this short list will enable you to do better... and that you won't be stopped by the test for too long!

    Go for it!
