Conjunctions: Connecting the Others
As it was with adjectives and adverbs, so it is with prepositions and conjunctions:
Adjectives modify nouns, adverbs modify other parts of speech.
Prepositions connect nouns, conjunctions connect other parts of speech.
There are three main conjunction types:
- coordinating conjunctions (e.g. or, and, but) – joining elements that have equal status in a sentence
- subordinating conjunctions (e.g. until, because, whether) – connecting subordinate clauses to main clauses.
- correlative conjunctions (e.g. not only…but also, neither…nor, whether…or) – combining with other words to form a pair
In our practical guide to writing in Module 6, we will look at some lessons using conjunctions in written work.
