comment Appropriate use of the term “transversely”
Correction: @GEdgar - no disrespect but, the explanation you give as to the meaning of "converse" is actually the "contrapositive". I only just realised that when I read your reply again. I think I may stick to "In contrast..." or "On the other hand..." as suggested below.

Thanks @GEdgar, I wasn't certain whether "conversely" was appropriate in this case. You more or less confirmed it in my mind.

comment Appropriate use of the term “transversely”
Hi @simchona, (I believe) the reason why "conversely" won't work here is because in mathematical speak, the converse of a statement A implies B, is B implies A. In the example that I have provided above, I have more or less negated the statement. I could, however, be wrong.
