Linking words are words that link or relate two ideas, either within a sentence or within a paragraph. Linking words have various functions, such as for contrasting information, making comparisons, adding information or giving reasons or explanations. Using the incorrect linking word can entirely change the meaning of the sentence and can cause quite a bit of confusion. It is therefore important to have a good understanding of the various meanings and uses of these words. Below you will find a list the various linking words according to their function.
