Choosing Transitional Expression --

Some transitional words and transitional phrases belong to more than one category. A transitional expression can change the whole meaning of a sentence. Therefore, you should choose the transition that best conveys your meaning. You should also avoid repetition and use different transition words or phrases in the same category if necessary.

 

Placing transition words:

There are three options for placing transition words:

• The beginning of a sentence [Most common]

• The middle of a sentence

• The end of a sentence [Least Common]
