Instructions on how to use So, But, However, Therefore

Connecting conjunctions

Conjunctions are words used to connect phrases, paragraphs, and sentences to create meaningful and logical connections between clauses.

Types of conjunctions in English:

Coordinating conjunctions: are conjunctions to say groups of words, cum words of the same type. Coordinating conjunctions in English include: and’ or; but; for, yet. Correspondence: is a conjunction used to say words, cum words that have grammatical equivalents. Common word correlations that can be encountered are: both..and; not only…but also; either…or; neither…nor; whether…or. Dependent conjunction: is a type of conjunction used to say groups of words or clauses with different functions, this clause depends on the other clause to complete and complete the meaning of the whole sentence. Subordinating conjunctions include: as, because; so; therefore; as soon as…

How to use So

So is classified as a group of subordinating conjunctions.

So means So, therefore, therefore, therefore.

So is used to indicate the result of an action, an event, or a phenomenon that happened before.

Clause + So + Clause.

Before “So” and after “So” do not use “.” Or the “,”

A regular clause after “So” is called a result clause for the clause before “so”.

For example:

She was ill so they must send for a doctor.

(She was sick so they had to go see a doctor.)

I worked hard today so I want to go to bed early.

(I’ve been working hard all day so I want to go to bed early.)

After So we can also use the infinitive if the subject cannot be identified.

For example:

These glasses are easyly broken so please be careful with them.

(These glasses are fragile so be careful with them.)

My teacher is tired today so may be off.

(Our teacher is sick today so we might be out of school.)


So that is a structure to indicate the result, but the intensity of the expression is stronger. So…that means so much that, to the extent that.

So…that is used with the structure: S+ Verb + so + adj/adv + that + clause

For example:

She drivers so fast that she had an accident.

(She was driving so fast that she had an accident.)

She was so angry that she doesn’t want her son.

(She was so angry that she didn’t want to see her son.)

How to use but

But means but, but that.

But is a conjunction to say the two sides of a sentence signify the opposite and contrast in terms of semantics.

Before and after but do not use “.” Or “,” or “;”

For example:

We tried to do it but we couldn’t pass.

I would like to go but I am busy today.

(I really want to go, but I’m busy tonight.)

I like him but I don’t love him.

(I like him but I don’t love him.)

Note: If but means to exclude, except that before “but” there must be a “,”.

For example:

My house is comfortable, but it only has 2 bed rooms.

(My house is comfortable besides it only has 2 bedrooms.)

I was extremely happy about this trip, but my homestay.

(I’m pretty happy with the trip other than the holiday home.)

Not only…but also

Not only…but also means not only…but also; not only…but more. Not only…but also is used to connect 2 clauses, 2 words, 2 phrases to complete the meaning in the sentence.

For example:

You are not only intelligent but also kind.

(you are not only smart but also kind,)

How to use However

However is also a conjunction meaning “however”, “however”, “however”. How to use However to indicate the contrast, opposition between two clauses.

However can stand at the beginning or middle of a sentence according to the following structure:

S + V + . + However + , + S2 + V2S + V + , + however + , + S2 + V2

For example:

I like studying English, however, I don’t like taking English Examination.

(I like learning English but I don’t like English tests.)

Lan always study very hard. However, she rarely gets good marks.

(Lan always studies hard. However, she rarely gets good grades.)

How to use Therefore

Therefore, the adverb of result means therefore, therefore, therefore.

Usage Therefore: Therefore is used to separate the two sentences, so the usage is similar to However. Specifically:

S + V + . + Therefore + , + S2 + V2S + V + , + therefore+ , + S2 + V2

Before therefore can have “and” or not.

For example:

(I went to bed late last night, so I was late for class)
