Question by  niku (28)

When is it appropriate to use the word "thus."

I'd appreciate an example.


Answer by  redset (54)

The word "thus" is most commonly used as a synonym for "therefore", and is thus appropriate in any situation where you wish to say "as a result" or "for this reason". It can also mean "in this manner", usually when demonstrating something. "Thus" is a fairly old word, and can sound quite formal in some situations.

Thus basically means "therefore. " If you're trying to make a point, and you have a few premises and a conclusion, thus would go before the conclusion. For example: Men have facial hair. I am a man. Thus, I have facial hair.
