Abstract
This study compares the use of causal connection words in English writing between English majors and non-English majors in undergraduate colleges. It concludes that, causal connectives are used more frequently and more appropriately in English majors' writing; compared with non-English major students' writing, the use of causal connectives is diversified and complicated. This research has certain guiding significance for the rational use of logical semantic conjunctions in the future and improving the level of students' English work.
