    Therefore 及 Thus 都是副詞,兩者意思和用法有些分別。

    THERFORE 的用法比較單一,主要是用來帶出前述句子的結果,解作 " 因此 " " 所以 "。

    例﹕She is good at singing and therefore she won a lot of prizes in different singing contests.

    THUS 有幾種意思,第一種意思與 Therefore 差不多。

    例﹕We had no electricity, and thus we had to light candles last night.

    第二種意思是 " 這樣 " 或 " 以這種方式 "

    例﹕You make lift heavy things thus to protect your spine.

    第三種用法跟 " so far " 差不多,用 " thus far " 來表示 " 直到目前" 或 " 到某一程度 "

    例﹕Scientists are thus far unable to solve the problem of global-warming.

    例﹕You must lift heavy things thus to protect your spine.There is a typing mistake. Sorry!

    thus & therefore are roughly the same...

    you can choose either one.

    Thus - 如此,這樣

    Therefore - 因此;因而;所以
