You can use a  conjunction  to link words,  phrases, and  clauses, as in the following example : I ate the pizza  and  the pasta. Call the movers  when  you are ready.

Coordinating Conjunctions:

Coordinating Conjunctions f or a nd n or b ut o r y et s o For, and, nor, but, or, yet and  so —these are the seven coordinating conjunctions. To remember all seven, you might want to learn one of these acronym:  FANBOYS .
