How do you use the word "therefore" in a sentence?

Answer

To use the word "therefore" in a sentence, the speaker can replace words such as "consequently" or "thus" in their speech. "I think, therefore I am" is a well-known example supplied by the philosopher Rene Descartes.

Therefore is an adverb meaning "for that reason," so it should be used to indicate causation. For example, "I am too sick to fly and, therefore, will not be able to make the trip." In writing, commas should be placed around the word "therefore" in most instances, although it is also acceptable to write "I am therefore unable to board the flight." A comma should be placed after "therefore" when it starts a sentence, as in "Therefore, I must miss my vacation."
