1.In order to为了……

Usage: “In order to”can be used to introduce an explanation for the purpose of an argument.

Example:“In order to understand X,we need first to understand Y.”

2.In other words换句话说

Usage: Use“in other words”when you want to express something in a different way(more simply),to make it easier to understand,or to emphasise or expand on a point.


Example:“Frogs are amphibians.In other words,they live on the land and in the water.”

3.To put it another way换句话说

Usage: This phrase is another way of saying“in other words”,and can be used in particularly complex points,when you feel that an alternative way of wording a problem may help the reader achieve a better understanding of its significance.

这个短语是in other words的另外一种说法,可以用在一些比较困难的观点的说明上,对于这些观点,你可能会认为换另外一种说法能够让读者更容易理解它的重要性。

Example:“Plants rely on photosynthesis.To put it another way,they will die without the sun.”

4.That is to say也就是说

Usage: “That is”and“that is to say”can be used to add further detail to your explanation,or to be more precise.


Example:“Whales are mammals.That is to say,they must breathe air.”

5.To that end为了达到那个目的

Usage: Use“to that end”or“to this end”in a similar way to“in order to”or“so”.

其实to that end或者to this end的用法和in order to或者so的用法相似。

Example:“Zoologists have long sought to understand how animals communicate with each other.To that end,a new study has been launched that looks at elephant sounds and their possible meanings.”

Adding additional information to support a point


Students often make the mistake of using synonyms of“and”each time they want to add further information in support of a point they’re making,or to build an argument.Here are some cleverer ways of doing this.


Usage: Employ“moreover”at the start of a sentence to add extra information in support of a point you’re making.


Example:“Moreover,the results of a recent piece of research provide compelling evidence in support of…”


Usage: This is also generally used at the start of a sentence,to add extra information.

Example:“Furthermore,there is evidence to suggest that…”

8.Whats more此外

Usage: This is used in the same way as“moreover”and“furthermore”.

Example:“What’s more,this isn’t the only evidence that supports this hypothesis.”


Usage: Use“likewise”when you want to talk about something that agrees with what you’ve just mentioned.


Example:“Scholar A believes X.Likewise,Scholar B argues compellingly in favour of this point of view.”


Usage: Use“similarly”in the same way as“likewise”.

Example:“Audiences at the time reacted with shock to Beethoven’s new work,because it was very different to what they were used to.Similarly,we have a tendency to react with surprise to the unfamiliar.”

11.Another key thing to remember


Usage: Use the phrase“another key point to remember”or“another key fact to remember”to introduce additional facts without using the word“also”.


Example:“As a Romantic,Blake was a proponent of a closer relationship between humans and nature.Another key point to remember is that Blake was writing during the Industrial Revolution,which had a major impact on the world around him.”

12.As well as

Usage: Use“as well as”instead of“also”or“and”.


Example:“Scholar A argued that this was due to X,as well as Y.”

13.Not onlybut also不仅如此……而且……

Usage: This wording is used to add an extra piece of information,often something that’s in some way more surprising or unexpected than the first piece of information.

Example:“Not only did Edmund Hillary have the honour of being the first to reach the summit of Everest,but he was also appointed Knight Commander of the Order of the British Empire.”

14.Coupled with

Usage: Used when considering two or more arguments at a time.


Example:“Coupled with the literary evidence,the statistics paint a compelling view of…”


Usage: This can be used to structure an argument,presenting facts clearly one after the other.

Example:“There are many points in support of this view.Firstly,X.Secondly,Y.And thirdly,Z.

16.Not to mention/to say nothing of更不必说

Usage: “Not to mention”and“to say nothing of”can be used to add extra information with a bit of emphasis.


Example:“The war caused unprecedented suffering to millions of people,not to mention its impact on the country’s economy.”

Words and phrases for demonstrating contrast


When you’re developing an argument,you will often need to present contrasting or opposing opinions or evidence–“it could show this,but it could also show this”,or“X says this,but Y disagrees”.This section covers words you can use instead of the“but”in these examples,to make your writing sound more intelligent and interesting.

17.However 然而,但是

Usage: Use“however”to introduce a point that disagrees with what you’ve just said.

Example:“Scholar A thinks this.However,Scholar B reached a different conclusion.”

18.On the other hand

Usage: Usage of this phrase includes introducing a contrasting interpretation of the same piece of evidence,a different piece of evidence that suggests something else,or an opposing opinion.

Example:“The historical evidence appears to suggest a clear-cut situation.On the other hand,the archaeological evidence presents a somewhat less straightforward picture of what happened that day.”

19.Having said that除……之外,即便如此

Usage: Used in a similar manner to“on the other hand”or“but”.

与on the other hand或者but用法类似。


Example:“The historians are unanimous in telling us X,an agreement that suggests that this version of events must be an accurate account.Having said that,the archaeology tells a different story.”

20.By contrast/in comparison通过比较

Usage: Use“by contrast”or“in comparison”when you’re comparing and contrasting pieces of evidence.

Example:“Scholar A’s opinion,then,is based on insufficient evidence.By contrast,Scholar B’s opinion seems more plausible.”
