CONNECTORS AND SEQUENCERS


When we
speak or write we have two options. We can use the formula sentence +
sentence + sentence + sentence + .....
which doesn't sound too natural

I like Sundays.
I don't work on
Sundays.

I wake up at 8.30.
I get up at 10.00.
I have a big
breakfast.

I sometimes read the
newspaper.

I sometimes work in
the garden.

I go out for a walk.
I have lunch with my family.
We watch TV.
We talk.
We don't work.
We don't study.

Or we can link the sentences and the discourse using CONNECTORS (and, or, but,
because
) and SEQUENCERS (then, before/after breakfast, ...) which
sounds a lot more natural, don't you think so?

we watch TV and talk. We don't work or study.
