Conjunctive Adverbs

Conjunctive adverbs join independent clauses into one sentence and facilitate creating a shorter sentence. When using a conjunctive adverb, put a semicolon (;) before and a comma (,) after it.

Some examples of conjunctive adverbs are: accordingly, besides, consequently, finally, however, indeed, instead, likewise, meanwhile, moreover, nevertheless, otherwise, still, therefore, then, etc.

·         The due date for submission has passed; therefore, I could not make mine on time.
·         It rained hard; moreover, lightening flashed and thunder boomed.
·         We have different methods of implementation; however, all result in the same output.

A conjunctive adverb is also used in a single main clause. In this case, a comma (,) is used to separate the conjunctive adverb from the sentence.

·         I woke up very late this morning. Nevertheless, I wasn’t late to office.
·         She didn’t take the cab to work today. Instead, she drove her car.
·         They returned home. Likewise, I went home.
