Transition (linguistics)

A transition or linking word is a word or phrase that shows the relationship between paragraphs or sections of a text or speech.[1] Transitions provide greater cohesion by making it more explicit or signaling how ideas relate to one another.[1] Transitions are “bridges” that “carry a reader from section to section.”[1] Transitions guide a reader through steps of logic, increments of time, or through physical space. Transitions “…connect words and ideas so that your readers don’t have to do the mental work for you.”[2] — Wikipedia
