    Good list, Renata. One question, though--does your book called these words "linking" words? I prefer to use the term "transition" word because "linking" word to me sounds very close to "linking verb." The technical term for these words is "conjunctive adverb."

    No, it's not a book. This is a paper I got from my teacher and she calls them 'linking words and phrases'. I don't know the real name, but I guess it doesn't really matters...
