CONJUNCTION

DEFINITION

It is the glue that  holds words, phrases and clauses (both dependent and independent) together.

TYPES  OF  CONJUNCTION

There are three different kinds of it– coordinating, subordinating, and correlative – each serving its own, distinct purpose, but all working to bring words together.

I. COORDINATING CONJ

Coordinating Conj join together words, phrases, and independent clauses. With them, short and choppy sentences can be joined into fuller lines. There are seven of them, and they’re easy to remember if you can just think of the acronym “FANBOYS.”

  • For – Explains reason or purpose (just like “because”)
  • And – Adds one thing to another
  • Nor – Used to present an alternative negative idea to an already stated negative idea
  • But – Shows contrast
  • Or – Presents an alternative or a choice
  • Yet – Introduces a contrasting idea that follows the preceding idea logically
  • So – Indicates effect, result or consequence

Example:

  • The park is green, but it is greener in the winter

II. SUBORDINATING CONJ

A subordinating conj always introduces a dependent clause, tying it to an independent clause. A dependent clause is a group of words that cannot stand alone as a complete sentence. An independent clause, by contrast, can stand alone as a complete sentence.

Unlike coordinating conj, subordinate conj can often come first in a sentence. This is because of the nature of the relationship between the dependent and the independent clause.

Example: If you leave, I will be lonely.

In English, there are lots of  subordinating conj. Here are the most common examples:

after, although, as, as if, as long as, as much, as, as soon as, as though, because, before, even, even if, even though, if, if, only, if when, if then, inasmuch, in order that, just as, lest, now, now that, once, provided, provided that, rather than, since, so that, supposing, than, that, though, unless, until, when, whenever, where, whereas, where if, wherever, whether, which, while, who, whoever, why 

III. CORRELATIVE CONJ

Correlative conjunctions are tag-team conjunctions. They  come in pairs, and you have to use both of them in different places in a sentence to make them work. These conjunctions work together (co-) and relate one sentence to another. So, if a noun follows “both,” then a noun should also follow “and.”

Example:

  • I want either ice cream or yogurt.   
  • Neither Alex nor Robin can play baseball.           
  • I want both ice cream and 
  • He ate not only the ice cream but also the chocolate.

Common pairs include:

  • both/and                
  • whether/or               
  • either/or      
  • neither/nor
  • not/but  
  • not only/but also  
  • whether / or
  • as / as such /    
  • that scarcely /when
  •  as many / as
  • no sooner / than
