  2. 2. What Is a Conjunctive Adverb? A conjunctive adverb is a modifier that shows the connection between two independent clauses in a sentence. When using a conjunctive adverb to connect two clauses in one sentence, it is preceded by a semicolon and followed by a comma. If you’re a test taker attending review classes in an OET center, it is vital to know everything about the conjunctive adverb, which includes these two functions of conjunctive adverbs:  There are conjunctive adverbs that display the relationship between ideas in two separate clauses. They can be used to compare, contrast or to conclude ideas in a sentence. Some examples of these conjunctive adverbs are also, likewise, otherwise, instead, and therefore. See the examples below: Meg is a talented pianist; also, her sister is a good guitarist. (Compare) The main course was excellent; likewise, the dessert was delicious. (Compare) Our law does not allow drunk and drive at all costs; otherwise, there would be many more road accidents. (Contrast) I didn’t call Bryan; instead, I sent him an e-mail. (Contrast) Stewie kept talking in our class; therefore, he got in trouble. (Conclude) Jason did not study; hence, he failed the test. (Conclude)  There are conjunctive adverbs that are transitional. They are used to show sequence, indicate time, or to present an idea in a sentence. Some examples of these conjunctive adverbs are then, afterward, meanwhile, in the meantime, in fact, and moreover. Check these examples: Snowbell, the cat, ate a bowlful of tuna; then, the girl saw the fat feline fell asleep in the rocking chair. (Show sequence)
  3. 3. You should travel and see the world; afterward, you will be able to put your problems in perspective. (Show sequence) You start cooking the pork steak; meanwhile, I will make the dessert. (Indicate time) The next program starts in ten minutes; in the meantime, here’s some booklet to read while waiting.
