When using a conjunctive adverb to join two independent clauses, what must precede the conjunctive adverb?
Either a period or a semicolon.
While a conjunctive adverb describes a link between one independent clause and a preceding independent clause, it is not a "true" conjunction in that it does not unite them into a single clause.
