Transition (trans)

A good transition acknowledges that you are moving on to a new point and indicates the logical relation between the new point and the old one. Words or phrases like “therefore,” “for instance,” “on the other hand,” and “nonetheless” provide simple but effective transitions, if they are warranted by the context. Transitions are most often needed between paragraphs and belong in the first sentence of the second paragraph, not in the last sentence of the first one.
