Transcript of Fun with Conjunctive Adverbs

For a reason that I don’t quite understand, however is often used in America as a transition word. e.g.
He believes in capital punishment; however, he thinks that the convict should receive the death penalty.

This sentence is obviously wrong and yet dismayingly typical.
If your voicemail greeting says, “I will be in Zanzibar for three weeks; however, upon my return, I will call you back,” this is the correct usage of however. Having said that, nevertheless, and nonetheless follow the same logic.
However
,
Having said that
…,
nevertheless
, and
nonetheless
should only be used to indicate a difference or a contradiction with a statement that came before.
Example
The election has been postponed until next week; therefore, we will not be able to vote today.
Therefore
indicates a logical conclusion. It signifies the transition from a cause/reason to an effect/consequence. It means “for this reason” or “consequently.” X happened, and therefore Y will happen. Remember that therefore must be earned.
Example
My friend Daniel calls me at least three times every day, even though I told him how busy I am;
moreover
, he is constantly sending me text-messages.
Moreover
is an addition word. It means the same thing as “also,” “in addition to,” or “furthermore.”

therefore
