Transitional Words & Phrases

The transition game "drag and drop"

There are three main reasons
for using transitional phrases within your writing:

  1. Using transitional words and phrases helps papers read more smoothly by providing coherence
  2. A coherent paper allows the reader to flow from the first supporting point to the next
  3. Transitions indicate relations, whether from sentence to sentence, from paragraph to paragraph, or from one idea to the next.
