It's a word or phrase that links clauses or sentences.  


Common connectives that you may see and use every day include butandthen.

You can, however, be much more adventurous with your use of connectives, why not try words like firstlyfinally, althoughfurthermoreconsequentlyand moreover to give your writing some real flair!
