Thanks

You can write here three kind of posts, like questions, answers, aand comments.

Like, and such as, for example, for instance, are transition words; they are phrases or words to connect one idea to the next.

There are also other types of transition words, see this TFD article: http://encyclopedia.thefreedictionary.com/transition+words

EDIT: like is more informal than such as or for example.



In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.
