Connective Words

  •  Today, I learned that there are a lot of “therefore” in sentences which Japanese wrote and it should not be in heavy usage. Also I learned that we must not use “therefore” with comma at the beginning of sentences. Hehehe, I have made great use of the word ever. Similarly, I think we use far too many connective words such as “so, however, as a result.” If we write sentences using many connective words, the sentences would give us the illusion that it’s logical despite non-logical. This is really dangerous. In some English-speaking school, students train to enhance their mental capacity and prevent a logical leap by limiting the use of “so.” I also want to be able to write logical sentences heartily, so I’d like to be careful to avoid “so.” Oops, it’s very difficult.
