A conjunction is a word that “joins”. A conjunction joins two parts of a sentence.
Here are some example conjunctions:
|Coordinating Conjunctions||Subordinating Conjunctions|
|and, but, or, nor, for, yet, so||although, because, since, unless|
We can consider conjunctions from three aspects.
Conjunctions have three basic forms:
- Single Word
for example: and, but, because, although
- Compound (often ending with as or that)
for example: provided that, as long as, in order that
- Correlative (surrounding an adverb or adjective)
for example: so…that
