Of course there are many other types of transition words, but we picked ones that we feel are mostly used.
You use spatial signals to show readers how people, places, and things stand in relation to one another.
You use logical signals to show readers how your ideas are connected.
using these words you can move from top to bottom, from near to far, from left to right, and so on
Here are some examples of how to use words from the 1st box.
On top
of the table we have a vase full of flowers my grandma gave us.
Net to
my bed is a bookcase that also has flowers from my grandma.
one... another
as a result
even though
first.. second.. third
for instance
the least important
in fact
the most important
not only.. but also
You can move from the least important idea to the most important idea or from the least familiar idea to the most familiar idea.
I will show you how to use a few of these words in a sentence.
Certain strategies can help you make the perfect cookie.
