Conjunctive Adverbs

Like other conjunctions, conjunctive adverbs connect.  Conjunctive adverbs can connect independent clauses together to create compound sentences.  Many transitional expressions are in fact conjunctive adverbs.

          I prepared for the test; however, I did not do well.

       Jason washed the dishes; meanwhile, his sister vacuumed the floor.  

Conjunctive adverbs can also begin, interrupt, or end a single main clause.
