COHERENCE AND COHESION
respectively - a great word to use when commenting on lists of information. It helps to link two sets of interconnected data. For example, “A, B, and C are like 1, 2, and 3, respectively.”
debuted - one of those strange words in the English language, the ‘t' is silent. If something has 'debuted’ (day-be-ood), it has been seen or exposed for the first time.
whereas - related to the issue of Coherence and Cohesion, this word is used above to link related but opposing information. For example, ‘This good thing happened one day, whereas this bad thing happened the next day.’
stellar achievement(s) - a really nice turn of phrase here. This means that the achievement was ‘stunning’ or ‘dazzling’, essentially very impressive.
