=> However : showing general contrasts, used when you are saying something that is different from or contrasts with a previous statement. Example : Raqheel had the flu and should have stayed home; however, she went to work.

=> Nevertheless : showing unexpected results, in spite of what has just been said. Example : Vian didn’t study and had poor notes from the class lectures; nevertheless, he got a high mark on the test.

=> Still : showing unexpected results. Example : Bob had a flat tire and traffic was very heavy; still, he made it to work on time.



b. Conjunctive adverbs of Condition : The conjunctive adverb means “if not”, it’s used when the second sentence shows the result if the first sentence doesn’t happen.

=> Otherwise : means in a different way or manner. Example : Be ready in five minutes; otherwise I’ll leave without you.



c. Conjuctive adverbs of Comparison : To compare things.

=> Likewise : means “in the same way”. Example : I love my child; likewise, I love myself.



d. Conjunctive adverbs of Result : To explain result at that time at the same time besides.
