In the conclusion of an essay, which fits better?
Through this experience, ...
Throughout this experience, ...
It sounds better to me with throughout, but I really do not know why. Any explicit example will be greatly appreciated.
One of the Oxford English Dictionary’s definitions of throughout as a preposition is ‘Through the whole of . . . in or to every part of; everywhere in.’ Through, on the other hand, can mean ‘by means of’. Your choice depends on the meaning you want to express.
