The use of hypothesis, topic sentences and linking devices in the essay writing

When writing essays we found that there are many kinds of structures as well asmany kinds of ways of writing. One of them is the hypothesis but before all, we should know what a hypothesis is: A hypothesis is a statement that provides a possible explanation for an event or phenomenon. It is not a statement of opinion; it is a statement that can be tested, which is why it is often used in science-related research essays. When formulating your hypothesis, consider whetherothers can test your statement and if the statement is based on research and verifiable facts.
In order to get a good hypothesis there are some aspects to take into account:
Firstly, of course choose on what your hypothesis is going to be about. What are you going to demonstrate? And then think about all of the possibilities that are probable outcomes for question for why this occurs. So, you know,why do people go to shopping malls? People go to shopping malls to shop, to socialize, you know, and list down all of your different reasons. And then pick out the one that is most attractive to you. People go to shopping malls primarily to shop, and that's your hypothesis. Narrow down the scope of your hypothesis. Good hypothesis, as opposed to just regular hypothesis, are ones that are veryspecific. So not, for example: you know, who, not, for example, how, how do people live in China, you know. How, just narrow it down and say, how does the average middle class woman live in China, and then all of the possibilities for answers to that, and then you're going to word your hypothesis with that question in an answer to it, very specific.
Having this example in mind, we can perceive thatit is always to write down more than one hypothesis, obviously, based on investigation and real data.

Topic Sentences
Writing a high-quality essay frequently depends upon the capability to write a good topic sentence. Teachers and professors will ask students to write a topic sentence essay, or an essay in which a question is asked and the topic sentence is already implied in the question.This main topic sentence is the thesis statement and each paragraph thereafter begins with its own topic sentence (Greetman, 39). Knowing how to make these statements cohere is the key to writing an effective essay. The topic sentence acts as a kind of summary, and offers the reader an insightful view of the writer’s main ideas for the following paragraph. More than just being a mere summary,however, a topic sentence often provides a claim or an insight directly or indirectly related to the thesis. It adds cohesion to a paper and helps organize ideas both inside the paragraph and the whole body of work at large.
Its use is considered standard in the American educational system and most venues of writing mainly because it increases reading accessibility.

A topic sentence (also known as afocus sentence) encapsulates or organizes an entire paragraph, and you should be careful to include one in most of your major paragraphs. Although topic sentences may appear anywhere in a paragraph, in academic essays they often appear at the beginning.
Generally speaking, topic sentences are:
• Short
• Simple
• Clear
• Give a strong idea

Linking Devices

Using the right linking wordshelps you to organize what you have to say about a text. It also helps you introduce and develop the essential ideas that will form the basis of your essay in a tightly connected structure and as short a space as possible.
Linking words and other connecting devices help you carry over from one sentence to another, from one paragraph to another, in a way that allows the reader to better understand...
