These terms help the reader understand the logic of your writing by connecting one
sentence to another and one paragraph to another. Common transitional terms include
on the contrary, on the other hand, although
for example, for instance
furthermore, consequently, moreover, therefore
besides, also, in addition.
Transitions are easy to establish if you pick up a key term in one sentence and reword
it in the next sentence. This reference helps the reader to follow your thinking.
Furthermore, by using transitions, you will avoid choppy style. (We've shown two strategies
for making transitions - repeating a key term and using a transitional word - in the
preceding three sentences.)
