Great ways to use essay connectives easily

You can have the best time of your life while you are a student. However, if you are struggling with writing essays, it could make it less of a fantastic experience for you. Basically, that’s the bad news, the good news is that by simply learning how to use essay connectives, you can improve your writing quickly and easily.

If, at this point, you are not quite sure what essay connectives are, it is simple – they are words that link ideas together so that your writing flows better. These can be used to connect both sentences and paragraphs. Basically, this means that it will be more pleasant for the reader to follow your article or essay because it will flow more. Using essay connectives gives a sense of an essay being one whole piece of writing as opposed to random paragraphs slotted together.

These connectives can be utilised to give more information. Let’s imagine that you are writing an essay on Andrew Marvell’s poem ‘To His Coy Mistress.’ You could write:

“The use of hyperbole in line 13 and 14 where Marvell suggests spending one hundred years to praise his mistress’ eyes indicates a patriarchal view that women are weak and vain. In line 15 and 16 Marvell continues in this vain by suggesting that each breast should be worshipped for two hundred years thus perpetrating his view of his mistress.”

The sample is without connectives and as it stands it is not linked. However, if we put in an adding connective it flows much better.

“The use of hyperbole in line 13 and 14 where Marvell suggests spending one hundred years to praise his mistress’ eyes indicates a patriarchal view that women are weak and vain. Moreover, in line 15 and 16 Marvell continues in this vain by suggesting that each breast should be worshipped for two hundred years thus perpetrating his view of his mistress.”

Can you see how the second sample offers a piece of critical analysis and then signals to the reader by the use of the adding connective ‘moreover’ that there is more information to follow?

Other adding connectives that you might use would be:

  • In addition.
  • Also.
  • Equally important.
  • Similarly.
  • Again.
  • Likewise.

Sequencing connectives are very useful to help you get clarity with your writing and they also help the reader to feel as if they are being led through the steps of your argument logically. For instance, if we stay with Andrew Marvell’s poem ‘To His Coy Mistress,’ you would use sequencing connectives to demonstrate how the writer uses a piece of structured hyperbole to bed his mistress.

“The lover in the poem demonstrates his patriarchal viewpoint that his mistress is both gullible and vain by stating that if they had the time, they would spend full days thinking how they would pass the time as if that is all that is on his mind. He displays his internal view of the woman that he is desperately trying to bed by offering hyperbole that suggests he would spend one hundred years praising her eyes.”

“Firstly, the lover in the poem demonstrates his patriarchal viewpoint that his mistress is both gullible and vain by stating that if they had the time, they would spend full days thinking how they would pass the time as if that is all that is on his mind. Secondly, he displays his internal view of the woman that he is desperately trying to bed by offering hyperbole that suggests he would spend one hundred years praising her eyes.”

Can you see how the sequencing connectives in the second sample help the reader to understand that the lover has got a structured argument for bedding his mistress in his head? In fact, sequencing connectives are so powerful that they can help you to plan your essay. For instance, if you were writing an essay on ‘To His Coy Mistress’;

  • You could break up the poem into the different strata of the lover’s plan.
  • At that point, you would use each ploy that he uses as a point.
  • Moreover, you could use simple numeric sequencing connectives to begin each paragraph e.g. Firstly, secondly, thirdly etc. and there you have an essay plan.
