Words of Connection - Palavras Conectivas do Inglês

Words of Connection - Palavras Conectivas do Inglês | Multilíngues | Scoop.it
Words of transition, words of connection, logical connectors, transition devices, cohesive devices, linking words/devices, discourse markers ou connective adjuncts, são algumas das muitas expressões usadas para identificar este aspecto de grande relevância no estudo, não só do inglês, como de todas as línguas. São principalmente conjunções ou locuções conjuntivas, mas também advérbios, preposições, etc., que servem para estabelecer uma conexão lógica entre frases e elementos da ideia. Em português essas palavras são chamadas de articuladores, palavras conectivas ou elementos de coesão. O uso correto destas palavras confere solidez ao argumento e consequentemente elegância ao texto.

100 (Free) Ways To Learn to Speak Another Language - TeachThought

100 (Free) Ways To Learn to Speak Another Language - TeachThought | Multilíngues | Scoop.it

"Learning another language is among the many things that have been made easier with the explosion of the digital universe. While some of the resources aren’t incredible (simply using Google Translate), and some of the languages fairly obscure (Welsh), the list is impressive if for no other reason than to demonstrate how much is actually out there if you do a little digging."

Best regards, Kind regards, Yours sincerely

As was pointed out " yours faithfully " is out of style but it still can be found in use especially in British English. However, as was also pointed out, there are alternatives that are used in both British and American (North American) English. 


1. More formal --- Sincerely yours, Yours sincerely, or even just Sincerely

2. less formal--- Sincerely, Kind/Best/Warm regards, Regards, *Best wishes

3. informal --- Best (wishes), Regards, * Just write your name *, See you, Thanks, etc., etc.

Not that this is a rule but in American English a comma is generally used after the greeting and after the closing.
