Linking Adverbs


List of Conjunctive Adverbs

While writing, a list of conjunctive adverbs 
may be helpful for some people. The purpose of 
a conjunctive adverb is to show a relationship 
between clauses such as comparing or contrasting, 
showing a sequence of events, or showing a cause and effect.

Conjunctive Adverbs

An adverb is a part of speech that modifies a verb,
adverb, adjectives, clauses, and sentences, anything
but a noun. Many adverbs end in -ly, although not all of them.
conjunction is a part of speech that connects phrases
and clauses. Therefore, a conjunctive adverb is a type
of adverb that joins together two clauses. These clauses
 are usually independent clauses, otherwise known as
complete sentences.

end of the first independent clause. The conjunctive
adverb is then used followed by a comma and the
 next independent clause.
