But/However

But/However

I was thinking this morning in the shower, as you do the meaning of the word “Apparently” is that everything you say after it is not necessarily fact?

So, in that way, in my late teens my mum taught me the difference between when to use the words “but” or “however”.

So, when you use the word ‘but’ after a statement it’s maybe when you are about to justify a comment you have made, that actually negates that comment and if you want that comment to stand then justify it you should use the word ‘however’ instead of ‘but’.

I could give you an example now, BUT it will be more interesting to see if people notice it in the future posts.
