Some words seem to stick together

Conjunctions hold parts of a sentence or whole sentences together like glue.

As with glue there are several kinds that perform different jobs.


Some words seem to stick together

AND: And is used to add things or ideas together - one thing plus another thing. For longer lists, and is used between the last two items.

And is a joining conjunction!


Some words seem to stick together

  • “Michael and Sarah went to the movies.” Michael went…

  • Sarah went… they both went to the movies

  • “Thomas slipped and fell on the ice.” Thomas did two things - he slipped, then he fell. And joins the actions.

  • “We went to the store for milk, bread, and cereal.” And joins objects of the preposition “for”.

  • “ I pulled out the weeds, and Jane watered the flowers.” Two people each did different things while working in the garden. The two parts could stand alone as sentences: “I pulled the weeds.” “Jane watered the flowers.” Since the ideas in the sentences are related to each other, they can be joined by and to form one compound sentence.

OR: Or is used between things or ideas about which there is a choice or when we don’t know the answer.

Or is a selective conjunction!


Some words seem to stick together

  • “Michael or Sarah went to the movies.” One of them went, but both of them did not. We don’t know which one.

  • “Thomas slipped or fell on the ice.” Thomas had a problem on the ice. Did he slip? Did he fall? We don’t know, but he did one of them.

  • “I will pull out the weeds, or Jane will water the flowers.” For some reason, these two people cannot both work in the garden. One of them can. Will it be I? Will it be Jane? We don’t know. Or tells us that only one of the things will take place.

  • “We need to buy milk, juice, or soda.” We evidently need something to drink, but it doesn’t matter what it is. We need to choose one of the items on our list. That is what or is telling us to do.


Some words seem to stick together

BUT: But is used to let us know that something happened in a sentence that we did not expect or to prepare us for an excuse.

But is a conjunction of differences!

(Not this, but that!)


Some words seem to stick together

  • “Michael went to the movies, but Sarah stayed home.” It would have been normal for Sarah to go with Michael. This time she did something different- she stayed at home. But introduces the difference.

  • “Thomas slipped on the ice, but he did not fall.” We would expect Thomas to fall when he slipped on the ice. He did something different - he did not fall. But introduces the difference.

  • “I did my homework, but the dog ate it.”

  • But is used quite often to introduce a reason why we did not do something we were supposed to do, like turn in our homework.

SO: So is used to introduce something that follows or is a result of something else.

So is a conjunction of consequences!


Some words seem to stick together

  • Michael went to the movies, so Sarah went to visit her friend.” As a result of Michael’s going out by himself, leaving Sarah alone, she decided to go out as well. If Michael had stayed home, Sarah would have also. SO introduces the consequences of Michael’s actions.

  • “Thomas slipped and fell on the ice, so he limped home.” As a result of slipping and falling, Thomas hurt himself and had to walk with a limp. SO introduces the results of the fall.

Yet, Although, Since, Because, However, Therefore and While are other conjunctions that connect and make COMPOUND SENTENCES.

Look for them in your READING! Use them in your WRITING, but don’t forget to use a comma to signal your compound sentences!
