Linguistic LingField(s):  Discourse Analysis

Query:   A friend of mine is working on a logic text and he posed
the following question:

Do all languages have 'conclusion indicators'(in English:
therefore, thus, so, consequently, it follows that) and
'premise indicators' (in English: because, since, for the
reason that)?

And more specifically: does Chinese have those words?

Information about any language is appreciated.
