Day 18 Grammar – Connectors II

Today, let’s combine information with connectors.

3 Piece Notes | Ms Lee

  1. Seriously injured. Not admitted. Transferred to City Hospital by ambulance.
    Ms Lee was transferred to the City Hospital as it was found that she was serious injured.

4 Piece Notes | Mr Parker

  1. Diagnosed as MI. Underwent surgery. Complicated postoperative period. Being discharged in 24 hours.
    Mr Parker is being discharged in 24 hours as his postoperative period was complicated.


I have seen that many of you start sentences with “therefore” and “in addition to”

  • You will simply lose marks for this.
  • Do not write such words because you like these words.
  • Write them when they are needed.
  • Why is this incorrect?

To write these words (connectors), you should make sure that the previous sentence is an addition to this sentence. I shall explain:

She was advised to refrain from the company of dogs. In addition to this, she lives with her friends.

  • In this case, “in addition to this” is not connected to the previous sentence.
  • The first sentence is an advice while the second is not.
  • She was advised to refrain from the company of dogs. In addition to this, a pet trainer was appointed to make sure that the two dogs have been fully rid of lice and other insects.
  • Look!
  • This is correct because the two sentences have some relation.

Let’s now proceed to questions. Hope you grab a good score!
