 A widely accepted(commonly) hold idea(point of view,viewpoint, opinion,assumption)is +THAT/NP
 A/The dominant(prevalent, prevailing)idea(see )is NP/to DO
 It is taken for granted+THAT(or:We often/frequently take it for granted THAT)
 People(The majority) seem to get accustomed to the idea(see ),without questioning,THAT
 People are willing to regard NP1 as NP2/ADJ
 People are willing to DO,while reluctant to DO
 However (But),…
 Such idea(see[1-2]),if not entirely ADJ1,is somewhat ADJ2 and needs careful consideration.
 In fact(As a matter of fact),…(follow)
 However, it is not (quite, necessarily)the case.
 This (It) is not (quite, necessarily) the case and needs to bo fruther considered/discussed.(or:further consideration/discussion)
 The reason lies in several aspects,
 The reason why+clause+[1, underlined]
 There are several remarkable reasons.

 Although much effort has been made, the situation is far from satisfactory (or: the problem remains unsolved, little improvement has been achieved)
 There is a tendency, as recent study (investigation) has pointed out (shown, revealed, indicated),+THAT
 There is growing concern about +NP
 It will inevitably (is likely to )result in (lead to ) unwanted (serious) consequence (or NP)
 We will not be able to afford the risk of overlooking the seriousness of the matter.
 The process, once initiated, is most likely irreversible.
 We are constantly (frequently) faced with NP
 NP1 is of great importance (necessity, value) in NP2 (or: NP is of enormous significance)
 The importance (necessity) of NP (to do sth.) lies in (the fact) that…
 NP1 plays, as is known, an irreplaceably important role in NP2
 The irreplaceably important role NP1 plays in NP2 is significant (obvous)
 NP1 is an indispensable part of NP2
 It is important (necessary) to DO (or:THAT)
 Special attention should be pay to …(or: We should pay special attention to…)
 What we should take into consideration is +NP
(immediate, emergent, effective) Measures are being taken (has been

 We have made much effort, there is still more we need to make (cf. We have learnt a lot, there is much more we need to lea123)
 If it were left for me to decide whether (wh-clause),I would, without hesitation, choose+to DO (or: I would prefer the former/the latter)
 To DO/NP is a matter of prerence.
 It is difficult to make a choice for one can hardly gain most without losing any.
 The difficulty lies in the fact that the advantages and disadvantages of both cases are equally obvious.
 In fact, we may well preserve a delicate balance or compromise between the two than go to extreme.
 It is not sensible to exclude one of the choices completely
 (of two conflicting ideas, concepts) Though conflicting to one another, they are so closely associated that understanding one will be impossible without discussing the other.
 The benefits of NP are varied…
While disadvantages are unavoidable, it is the advantages that prevail.
