In text linguistics , connectors are conjunctions and adverbs that serve to connect successive sentences. They are thus means of cohesion or coherence (in the broader sense) and exercise a text-linguistic function. In the full sequence "I had a date with Peter. Then he suddenly became ill and could not come," is then such a connector.

However, connectors also play an important role in syntax for the formation of complex sentences.
