  • Using linking words

    Linking words or phrases help you to build a logical argument in your assignment by linking one statement to another. An assignment without linking words reads like a series of unrelated statements with no flow.

    Linking words can be used to

    • link the flow of ideas in your writing
    • guide your reader towards the next stage of your argument
    • link paragraphs together.
