Grammar Lesson

I am aggravated by the misuse of certain words, so I want to clarify them with the audience.

1. Hence means “for this reason.”

2. Therefore means “for this reason.” It is usually used in Mathematics.

BUT!

3. Thus means “in this way.”

 

SO (most commonly used), thus is NEITHER interchangeable with hence NOR therefore.

Stop acting like they are!
