What are Sequence Connectors? (with Examples)

What are sequence connectors?

Sequence connectors are intended to establish a temporal order between the actions that make up a speech. Connectors are a type of word used to establish relationships between ideas, sentences, and other words.

Sequence connectors can be divided into three groups: to introduce ideas, to establish a sequence between different actions, and to conclude. For example, in the sentence «I was listening to music and at the same time I was working» the sequence connector is used at once.

Some sequence connectors are:

At first, at first.
First of all.
For a start.
To start.
First, first of all.
For now.
Until, until now.
Before, before.
It wasn’t… until.
Second, third.
After, after that, after a while.
Since, since then.
Shortly after.
After a while.
At the same time.
Immediately, immediately.
As soon as.
Later, an hour later.
In the end.
To finish, to finish.
