Discourse Markers
  1. Of contrast

    Annotations:

    • We use discourse markers of contrast to show differences between two points.
    1. We use "on the one hand" and "on the other hand" together.

      Annotations:

      • On the one hand, I'd like a job that pays more. On the other hand, I enjoy the work I'm doing at the moment.
      1. "Although", "while" and "though" go before the two points being contrasted.

        Annotations:

        • While my sister prefers key lime pie, I prefer chocolate cake.
        • Though it's raining outside, I'm still going to go hiking. 
        • Although Tom is sick, he's planning on going to school.
        1. "However" and "whereas" go between the points being contrasted.

          Annotations:

          • The movie got good reviews. However, it was very long.
          • The south has a hot, dry climate whereas the north has a milder, wetter climate.
        2. Of comparison

          Annotations:

          • We use discourse markers of comparison to show how things are similar.
          1. "Equally" and "like" usually go between the points being compared.

            Annotations:

            • Not all businesses are legitimate. Equally, not all customers are honest.
            • Brain food, like chocolate and fish, are supposed to help your brain stary healthy.
            1. "Both" goes before the points being compared.

              Annotations:

              • Both men and women have complained about the advertisement.
