What is Conjunctions????
    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
