We use ‘but’ and ‘however’ very often in the English language to express an exception. The two words are similar. It is important to remember that ‘but’ is a conjunction, so it joins two sentences. It is incorrect to begin a sentence with ‘but’. “However” is an adverb. You can begin a sentence with ‘however’. When we begin a sentence with “however”, it is followed by a comma.
