    Novel: Emma

    by Jane Austen

    Emma continued to entertain no doubt of her being in love. Her ideas only varied as to the how much. At first, she thought it was a good deal; and afterwards, but little. She had great pleasure in hearing Frank Churchill talked of; and, for his sake, greater pleasure than ever in seeing Mr. and Mrs. Weston; she was very often thinking of him, and quite impatient for a letter, that she might know how he was, how were his spirits, how was his aunt, and what was the chance of his coming to Randalls again this spring. But, on the other hand, she could not admit herself to be unhappy, nor, after the first morning, to be less disposed for employment than usual; she was still busy and cheerful; and, pleasing as he was, she could yet imagine him to have faults; and farther, though thinking of him so much, and, as she sat drawing or working, forming a thousand amusing schemes for the progress and close of their attachment, fancying interesting dialogues, and inventing elegant letters; the conclusion of every imaginary declaration on his side was that she refused him. Their affection was always to subside into friendship. Every thing tender and charming was to mark their parting; but still they were to part. When she became sensible of this, it struck her that she could not be very much in love; for in spite of her previous and fixed determination never to quit her father, never to marry, a strong attachment certainly must produce more of a struggle than she could foresee in her own feelings.

    East End of London

    The East End of London, also known simply as the East End, is the area of London, England, east of the medieval walled City of London and north of the River Thames. Although not defined by universally accepted formal boundaries, the River Lea can be considered another boundary.

    Official attempts to address the overcrowded housing began at the beginning of the 20th century under the London County Council. The Second World War devastated much of the East End, with its docks, railways and industry forming a continual target for bombing, especially during the Blitz, leading to dispersal of the population to new suburbs and new housing being built in the 1950s. The Canary Wharf development, improved infrastructure, and the Olympic Park mean that the East End is undergoing further change, but some parts continue to contain some of the worst poverty in Britain

    What is Transition words?

    Transitions are connective words, phrases, or sentences that show the relationship between
    ideas. They are cues that help the reader interpret ideas the way that you, the writer, want them
    understood. Transitions are invaluable because they clarify the content of a written work by
    showing relationships between ideas and by maintaining a clear flow of thought throughout.
    Because they show how ideas relate to each other, transitions aid organization and prevent abrupt,
    confusing shifts. Thus, transitions can be critical to clear, effective writing. The best transitions are
    those that most clearly and effectively guide the reader; however, it is up the writer to determine
    which transitions will do this best.

    : To achieve unity between the sentences within paragraphs, transitions should be used. Transitions
    between two sentences in a paragraph are often only a word or a phrase, and a writer’s choice of
    transitions may be somewhat restricted. Nevertheless, using transitions is critical to show the
    logical relationship and cohesive link between the sentences that make up the paragraph.
    No Transition: Rudolpho is incredibly tall. He does not play basketball.
    A relationship between the sentences is implied, but exactly what kind of relationship remains
    unclear until the writer modifies the sentences. Here is one possible solution highlighting the
    contrasting relationship between the two sentences.
    With Transition: Rudolpho is incredibly tall; nevertheless, he does not play basketball.

    Between Paragraphs:

    Transitions should not only hold together sentences within a paragraph, but they should connect one
    paragraph to another. Transitions are critical between paragraphs because they bridge the gaps that
    can occur when the idea in one paragraph ends and a new idea begins. To ensure that the reader is
    able to clearly follow this shift between ideas, transitions should be used to both remind the reader
    of the previous paragraph and look forward to the idea discussed in the paragraph that follows.
    Therefore, transitions between paragraphs can be quite complex, often forming entire sentences.
    Although there are almost unlimited options when transitioning between paragraphs, a successful
    transition must convey how the two paragraphs are connected logically—that is, the transition
    should show the reader how the paragraph is important in relation to the other ideas put forth in the
    Strategies: Here are a few approaches one can take when transitioning between sentences and paragraphs.
    Use Words that Express Logical Relationships:
    Use a transition word or phrase between sentences or paragraphs to show the logical link
    between the ideas they express. These transitions may simply express time sequence, cause and
    effect, comparison and contrast etc., or they might be more complex transitions which draw
    conclusions from preceding paragraphs and, thus, imply the building of an idea or thought. See the
    chart on the back of this handout for examples of transition words and phrases.
    Use Repetition to Achieve Transition:
    Another way to achieve transition is by repeating key words. You may have been told that
    repetition is annoying to the reader and a waste of words. Often this is true; however, at times,
    readers appreciate deliberate repetition because it bridges gaps and aids comprehension. Within
    sentences, transition can be aided by repeating words that reiterate key ideas. Within paragraphs,
    transition can be effectively achieved by reminding the reader how the idea expressed within each
    paragraph relates to the paper’s thesis statement or main idea.
