Conjunctive Adverbs

Conjunctions join words, phrases, and clauses. Sometimes an adverb will also join two independent clauses.  We then call it a conjunctive adverb.  The following is a partial list of conjunctive adverbs:
 
accordingly            however            next                                                               
also                       indeed               nevertheless    
besides                  instead              otherwise                                                         
consequently           likewise             similarly                           
finally                    meanwhile          subsequently
futhermore             moreover           therefore
 
The sentence pattern for conjunctive adverbs that join two independent clauses is the following:
 
                                  independent clause + ; conjunctive adverb, + independent clause
                                  Carl wrote the letter; consequently, Yesenia mailed it.
