Can you use thus to start a sentence?

Can you use thus to start a sentence?

It is wrong to use in the beginning a sentence with ‘thus’ to mean ‘therefore’ or ‘consequently’ unless the causative action is mentioned first. But if it is to be used to mean ‘in this way/manner’ it is usually used at the end, eg., You can hold it thus.

What is the use of thus?

Use the adverb thus in place of words like therefore or so when you want to sound proper. Use thus interchangeably with words like consequently, ergo, hence, and just like that. For example, if you want to sound fancy you could say no one showed up for water aerobics, thus the class was cancelled.

Where do you put thus?

BEGINNING OF SENTENCE At the beginning of a sentence (followed by a comma), ‘thus’ can have four different functions. Similar to the other causative connectors in this group, it can be used to link reasons with results, with the meaning of “For this reason” or “Because of this/that”.

Can you say hence the reason?

It’s correct if used correctly, but is probably far more often used incorrectly. ‘Hence’ originally means ‘from here’. So ‘Hence the reason’ means ‘the reason comes from here’ – ‘here’ being something you’ve already said. The ‘here’ isn’t the reason itself, though – it’s something underpinning the reason.

Is so therefore grammatically correct?

“So” sometimes means “and it follows that”, “therefore” means “for this reason”, and “so therefore” can mean “and it follows for this reason that”. “So” is more of a conjunction; “therefore” more of an adverb with an antecedent. Punctuation usually reflects this difference.
