Ever writer needs a reader.
Transitional words or phrases show readers
the writer wants them to read, interpret, react to,and evaluate what was written about the subject. Writers can use these devices like bridges to carrythe reader gracefully from one idea development to the next: sentence to sentence, paragraph toparagraph, and one part of a document to the next. Because they direct the reader’s attention inspecific ways, there are several categories of transitions for writers to choose from.Here are some categories of common transitional devices that writers can use:
