Using coordinators and subordinators to compare and contrast

comparison contrast

Coordinators and but, yet

Subordinators although

even though

though

while

whereas

Coordinators give equal emphasis to the ideas they join.

Subordinators de-emphasize the ideas they are attached to. They are sometimes called concession words.

transition words
Transition words

Because transition words do not join two sentences, we have to be aware of the correct ways to use them.

  • Join two logically-related sentences with a semi-colon and show the logical relationship with a transition word.
  • Separate the sentences with a period, and show the logical relationship with a transition word.
slide7

Coordinators can join sentences and begin sentences. When they join sentences, place a comma before the coordinator.

  • Kim likes heavy metal, but Tom prefers jazz.
  • Subordinators join dependent clauses to sentences. When the dependent clause comes first, place a comma after it.
  • While Kim likes meat, Tom prefers salads.
  • If the dependent clause follows the independent clause, don’t use a comma.
  • Kim likes meat while Tom prefers salads.
