Connectives

connectors
Use:
Connectors are used to join ideas together and make longer sentences. They can be grouped into those with
similar basic meanings, e.g.
Contrast: although, however, but
Result: so, therefore, because
Condition: if, unless, only if
Form:
Connectors usually combine two clauses. Notice that some are placed either between or in front of the clauses.
He was angry. He didn’t shout.
He was angry but he didn’t shout.
Although he was angry, he didn’t shout.
He was angry. However, he didn’t shout.

Language assistant
Do not use two connectors with the same function together.
Although he was angry, but he didn’t shout. ✘

So (or therefore) and because have the same essential meaning but work differently in a sentence.
