Transitions are the cement that hold our writing together. They are the short phrases that draw relationships between and within the sentences in a text. For example, "for example" is a transition, as are "likewise", "similarly", and "thus".
Transition are most important in technical, business, and academic writing because they help us to form a cogent argument. We check for hundreds of transition phrases in your writing and highlight all of the ones that we find.
We generally recommend at least one transition phrase every four sentences. Sections of your writing that have a lower frequency that this may be difficult to follow and disjointed. Scouting over your work for sections low in transitions may help you to identify sections that need re-working.
