afterward after that not only … but also
afterwards all in all neither … nor
albeit all of a sudden whether … or
also all things considered no sooner … than

because as a result  
before as an illustration  
besides as can be seen  
but as has been noted  
certainly as I have noted  
chiefly as I have said  
comparatively as I have shown  
concurrently as long as  
consequently as much as  
contrarily as shown above  
conversely as soon as  
correspondingly as well as  
despite at any rate  
doubtedly at first  
during at last  
e.g. at least  
earlier at length  
emphatically at the present time  
equally at the same time  
especially at this instant  
eventually at this point  
evidently at this time  
explicitly balanced against  
finally being that  
firstly by all means  
following by and large  
formerly by comparison  
forthwith by the same token  
fourthly by the time  
further compared to  
furthermore be that as it may  
generally coupled with  
hence different from

however equally important  
i.e. even if  
identically even more  
indeed even so  
instead even though  
last first thing to remember  
lastly for example  
later for fear that  
lest for instance  
likewise for one thing  
markedly for that reason  
meanwhile for the most part  
moreover for the purpose of  
nevertheless for the same reason  
nonetheless for this purpose  
nor for this reason  
notwithstanding from time to time  
obviously given that  
occasionally given these points  
otherwise important to realize  
once once in a while  
overall in a word  
particularly in addition  
presently in another case  
previously in any case  
rather in any event  
regardless in brief  
secondly in case

significantly in contrast  
similarly in detail  
simultaneously in due time
