Conjunctions/Connectives 

 

Conjunctions are words used to connect words, phrases, or clauses. There are three types of conjunctions:

1. Coordinating Conjunctions 

2. Subordinating Conjunctions

3. Correlative Conjunctions

Monday 

 

Coordinating Conjunctions.

Coordinating conjunctions join like with like. For example, they join a noun with another noun or an adjective with another adjective. The most common ones are "and," "but," and "or." There are seven in total: "for," "and," "nor," "but," "or," "yet," and "so." (You can remember them using the mnemonic F.A.N.B.O.Y.S.)
