                   ఒక paragraph construction జరుగుతున్నపుడు వివిధ రకాల expressions ని పలికించడానికి  ఉపయోగపడే words or phrases ని  LINKERS లేదా TRANSITIONS లేదా CONNECTORS లేదా DISCOURSE MARKERS అని కూడా అంటారు. ఇవి మనం అనుకున్న భావాన్ని చక్కగా వివరించడానికి, పోల్చడానికి, విరుద్ధ విషయాలను కలపడానికి, వర్ణంచడానికి, నిర్వచించడానికి, సంక్షప్తపరచడానికి అలాగే హేతుబద్ధీకరించడానికి ఉపయోగపడుతాయి. Descriptive paragraph రాయడానికి ఈ DISCOURSE MARKERS చాలా ఉపకరిస్తాయి.

What are linkers? 

        Linkers ఒక idea ను లేదా sentence of the text ను మరొక idea చేత లేదా sentence of the text చేత logical గా connect చేయడానికి ఉపయోగిస్తాము.

Why are they used? 

     ఇవి writer కు direction ఇస్తాయి మరియు reader ను thought process లో guide చేస్తాయి. వీటి వినియోగంతో write-up కు specific meaning వస్తుంది.

Example Paragraph:

            The human body is a wonderful piece of work that nature has created. It is not beautiful like the body of a butterfly or a peacock but it is shaped practically. It can do many types of work which other animals cannot. It is not strong like the body of a tiger. But in place of physical strength it has a big and sharp brain. By using this brain the human physique has been able to overcome many of its limitations. By sitting in an airplane it flies faster than a kite, by riding a motorcycle it travels faster than a leopard, and by firing a machine gun it fights much better than a tiger. In spite of all this, the human body suffers from many diseases because it has a weakness for habits such as smoking, drinking and overeating. When it is healthy the body can give great pleasure but when it is sick it can cause great pain. The wise man would always keep his body fit because a healthy mind can work only in a healthy body.
