What is a Conjunctive Adverb?

Conjunctive adverbsConjunctive adverbs serve to connect only clauses. The primary conjunctive adverbs are:

so — hence — nevertheless
however — moreover — accordingly
besides — thus — yet
then — still — furthermore


Examples of the conjunctive adverb connecting the clauses of compound sentences:

EX.— It was becoming cold; so I shut the windows.

EX.— She was ill; hence she could not play.

EX.— The beach was crowded; nevertheless, we found a spot close to the ocean.

EX.— I felt he was being greedy; however, since he insisted, I gave him the money.

EX.— Becky doesn't know how to speak Spanish; moreover, she does not know how to translate text.

EX.— The director told us to be quiet; accordingly, we crept down the stairway and found a seat.

EX.— That car is ugly; besides, it is not large enough for a family.

EX.— Timothy opened a bank account; thus he hoped to pay off his debt.

EX.— She is a careful driver; yet I always feel nervous in her car.

EX.— I prefer not to change jobs; still, I might have to.

EX.— He stared at me in anger; then he turned and left me.

NOTE— You can use a comma to separate the second clause of a compound sentence connected by and from the first clause. But you cannot use a comma to separate the second clause of a compound sentence introduced by a conjunctive adverb from the first clause. Instead, you can use a semicolon (;) to separate a clause in a compound sentence introduced by a conjunctive adverb.
