Hi,



Are both sentences below acceptable?



'I am currently on leave, thus I have no access to my office email.'



'I am currently on leave and thus no access to my office email.'



If they are incorrect, please explain briefly to me.

Thank you.

The second one is no good because a clause is required here after the adverbial 'thus'.

Hi. I think the word "thus" is an adverb.

'I am currently on leave and thus no access to my office email.'

Would you say the former sentence should be (either of?) these?

I am currently on leave. Thus, I have no access to my office email.

I am currenly on leave, and thus I have no access to my office email.

If what she wrote is correct, then what is the underlined part that comes after the comma in her (this) sentence?

If I am currently on leave, thus I have no access to my office email.

Yes, I like those.

That (if...thus) makes no sense.
