What are some examples of transition words?
Thus, for example, for instance, namely, to illustrate, in other words, in particular, specifically, such as. On the contrary, contrarily, notwithstanding, but, however, nevertheless, in spite of, in contrast, yet, on one hand, on the other hand, rather, or, nor, conversely, at the same time, while this may be true.
So ... someone was asking about transition words. You named a bunch of them but one that is getting under my skin lately is 'so'. It means that one thing follows another: We needed milk so I went to the store.
People are using it more and more often at the beginning of a sentence as a sort of filler word. (or I am just getting old and easily irritated) 9/10 times you can drop the 'so' and the sentence would be fine.
I think people use it in forums because it sounds as if they are continuing some other discussion, not just spouting off their own random thoughts.
Slightly confused by this thread. but okay
Feel free to PM me any issues you may have, but try to keep it on the forum disco villager
