Conclusion indicators

From Debatepedia

Jump to: navigation, search

Remembering that the structure of an argument or thesis is composed of two parts (a conclusion and its premises), certain words help explicitly express the conclusion, claim, or opinion half of an argument. Those terms and phrases include the following: therefore, thus, so, accordingly, hence, and so, it follows that, I conclude that, my conclusion is, my claim is, I believe, I advance, and in my opinion. Just as there are conclusion indicators, there are premise indicators.
