Conjunction joins two parts of a sentence. A conjunction is a word that connects other words or groups of words.
- Single word : and, but, because, although
- Compound (often ending with as or that) : provided that, as long as, in order that
- Correlative ( surrounding an adverb or adjective) : so......that
- and, but, or, nor, for, yet, so
- A coordinating conjunction joins parts of a sentence, (for example words or independent clauses) that are grammatically equal or similar. A coordinating conjunction shows that the elements it joins are similar in importance and structure.
- Example : - I like tea and coffee
- both...and, either....or, not only....but also, neither...nor
- Always appear in pairs - we use them to link equivalent sentences elements.
- Example : We can have either seafood or Western food for dinner
