9: LINKING WORDS
'Collins COBUILD English Guides' provide extensive information on specific areas of today's English, using the evidence from 'The Bank of English' to select what is really important.
This book is suitable for students from intermediate level upwards, and will be a valuable resource for teachers.
Being able to link clauses into sentences; showing the meaning-based connections between sentences; using reference and substitution items effectively – these are all essential to writing and speaking natural-sounding English. 'Linking Words' interprets widely the concept of 'linking' to cover all these language areas. In addition it includes a chapter on link words in conversation, and a final chapter on an important group of 'sentence adverbs' which indicate the writer's or speaker's attitude and so make for easier comprehension.

• Conjunctions and connectors compared
• Words used in reference and substitution
