其实当我们想到逻辑连接的时候，最常想到的，就是每段话开始要用到First，Second，亦或者是last of all或者initially这样的连接词，说实话，这些是很重要的，但是他只是托福考试这张大大的拼图当中的一部分。逻辑连接就好像是一张椅子，每段开始的逻辑连接词，就是他的一条腿，没有不行，但是如果这张椅子只有一条腿也不行。

因此这就出现了一个很有意思的现象，就是我们看英文文章，会发现文章内部，60%-90%都有各种形式的连接词！比如TPO的这段文章（连接词无老师用大写标出）Cases IN WHICH many species become extinct within a geologically short interval of time are called mass extinctions. THERE was one SUCH event AT the end of the Cretaceous period (around 70 million years ago). There was ANOTHER, EVEN larger, mass extinction at the end of the Permian period (around 250 million years ago). THE Permian event has attracted much less attention than OTHER mass extinctions BECAUSE mostly unfamiliar species perished at THAT time.但是中文由于本身就缺少连接词，因此我们翻译过来的文章同样缺少连接词！这就出现了一个连接词缺失的问题！因此这就要求，我们在平时写作文的时候，写完之后要重新多看几遍自己的作文，补全这些连接词。
貌似这就已经全了，但是其实不然，还有一部分所占的比例不是特别高的连接方式，就是意思上的链接。比如这一段SOME of the proposed mechanisms required a very brief period during which all extinctions suddenly took place; OTHER mechanisms would be more likely to have taken place more gradually, over an extended period, or at different times on different continents.显然，后面的OTHER，是专门针对与前面的SOME而提的，只有前面“一部分人”说了什么，才有后面的“另一部分人”提出新的观点。显然这两个词的使用，起到了前后呼应的作用。
再比如Some hypotheses fail to account for simultaneous EXTINCTIONS on land and in the seas. EACH mass EXTINCTION may have had a different CAUSE. EVIDENCE points to hunting by humans and habitat destruction as the likely causes for the current mass extinction.这里面前一句话提到了“灭绝”，那么后面提到了“每一次灭绝”自然就属于前面的“灭绝”里面的一部分。然后本句话又提到了“原因”，后面就马上提到了“证据”，“证据”的作用显然就是来支持或者验证“原因”的。
