Sequence Markers

These linguistic items go by various names, e.g. conjuncts, sentence adverbials, connectives, linking devices
Sequence markers
can signal how to interpret the relationship between sentences in a number of different ways.
e.g. first ... secondly ... thirdly; to begin with .... next ... to conclude).
They can add to or reinforce what has already been said
(e.g. furthermore; in addition; what is more
are a certain group of items, mainly adverbs and preposition phrases, that link sentences together into a larger unit of discourse
They can indicate chronological order, or order of importance
They can indicate that two propositions have equal status.
likewise, similarly
They can indicate cause-result relationships (e.g. consequently; so; as a result).
They can indicate that a given proposition contradicts an earlier one (e.g. conversely; on the contrary; by way of contrast).
They can indicate concession (e.g. nevertheless; in any case; for all that; all the same)
Sometimes a distinction is made between internal and external sequencers, i.e. the use of these markers to indicate ‘real world’ events (external), or ‘rhetorical organisation’ (internal). For example, First of all .... then .... finally can indicate chronological sequence (external), or order of importance (internal).
