Results-driven abstract

  • A count of sentence connectors in 12 academic papers produced 70 different connectors. These varied in frequency from 62 tokens (however) to single occurrences. Seventy-five percent of the 467 examples appeared in sentence-initial position. However, individual connectors varied considerable in position preference. Some (e,g., in addition) always occurred initially; in other cases (for example, therefore), they were placed after the subject more that 50% of the time. These finding suggest that a search for general rules for connector position may not be fruitful.

Research-paper summary

Although sentence connectors are a well-recognized feature of academic writing, little research has been undertaken on their positioning (intro). In this study, we analyze the position of 467 connectors found in a sample of 12 research papers (methods).Seventy-five percent of the connectors occurred at the beginning of sentences. However, individual connectors varied greatly in positional preference (results). Some, such as in addition, only occurred initially; others, such as therefore, occurred initially in only 40% of the cases. These preliminary findings suggest that general rules for connector position will prove elusive (conclusion).
