Dear potential donor:

The English Transitional Words Database (ETWD) is continuously helping students, professionals, scholars, and regular people to learn the English language around the world; from school districts to multinationals. ETWD provides choices of transitional words to writers with the goal of increasing the coherence of their compositions. For further reference, take a look at a seminar presentation in the Department. of Experimental Statistics at Louisiana State University and A&M College. The presentation is titled "Forecasting Usability of the English Transitional Words Database" Download PDF File.

ETWD is work in progress, and encompasses the classification and description of transitional words as well as the formulation of examples. As such, your contribution will further this cause by paying for the annual webhosting costs and annual costs of the internet domain. And depending upon the size of your contribution, I am willing to take this endeavor to the next level, with the goal of studying English transitional words and phrases in a more systematic manner.

Your contribution is highly appreciated, thank you! And for the sake of transparency, the list of donors and further details will be published as soon as contributions are made. Please do not hesitate to contact me [click here for my contact information].

Sincerely,

Carlos García
