Definition
  • A conjunction joins two words or groups of words (phrases or clauses) together.
coordinating conjunctions
Coordinating conjunctions
  • Coordinating conjunctions co-ordinate, or join equals.
  • And, but, or, nor, for, so, yet
  • Keep in mind, these words are dependent on function. The word for can also be a preposition, but it just depends on how it is used.
subordinating conjunction
Subordinating conjunction
  • Subordinating conjunctions join unequals. They join something of lesser importance to something of greater importance.
  • If, as, since, when, and because
