Transitions
Vera Queiroz
 Nova sessão de dicas para uma leitura mais eficaz de textos em inglês. Continuando asobservações sobre
transitions
, estude o breve resume:Como já havia mencionado anteriormente, as
transitions
mostram as relações entre duasorações. Baseadas na função que exercem, elas podem ser divididas em quatro categorias principais:1.
 
Aditiva: also, moreover, likewise, indeed, furthermore, besides. 
 Exemplo
: He decided to resign.
Moreover
, he severed all connections with the partythat supported him.2.
 
Adversativa: anyhow, instead, still, however, nevertheless. 
 Exemplo
: The book on copyright issues is expensive;
however
, it´s worth it.3.
 
Causal: consequently, otherwise, thus, hence
 Exemplo
: Whatever the merits of or problems with American fair use, it isapplicable law only within the jurisdictional borders of the United States.
Hence
, if a researcher is in the U.S., he or she may apply fair use with respect to works thatmight have originated anywhere in the world.4.
 
“Seqüencial”: meanwhile, eventually, henceforth, then.
 Exemplo
: The United States celebrated its bicentennial in 1976.
Meanwhile
, manycities and towns celebrated their tricentennials.Vale lembrar que algumas
transitions
podem ser precedidas por uma conjunçãocoordenada.
 Exemplo
: The question was difficult to answer,
and
 
therefore
few students got the correctanswer.Observe também a posição em que a
transition
ocorre nos exemplos abaixo e a pontuaçãoutilizada:a)
 
He has worked very hard; thus, he deserves a raise. b)
 
He has worked very hard. Thus, he deserves a raise.Outras observações relevantes:1.
 
 Não confunda
besides
(além de) com
beside
(ao lado de).2.
 
Lembre-se que
eventually
não significa eventualmente, mas finalmente.
