Interjections & Conjunctions 4a5 - Articles; coordinating/subordinating conjunctions; correlative conjunctions 4a11 - Interjections


Conjunctions Conjunctions connect words or groups of words. They are different from prepositions in that they do not have an object . There are three types of Conunctions: 1. Coordinating conjunctions 2. Correlative conjunctions 3. Subordinating conjunctions

Coordinating conjunctions:

Coordinating conjunctions Conjunctions connect words of the same kind . Examples of coordinating conjunctions are: 1. and 2. but 3. for 4. nor 5. or 6. so 7. yet


Examples Troy wanted to play football badly, but his knee and his feet were injured. Mr. Swartos was excited and nervous about his bear hunt.


Practice Troy practiced hard every day, so his teammates respected him. Jesse made positive behavioral choices at school and at home.

Correlative conjunctions:

Correlative conjunctions Similar to coordinating conjunctions, except that they work in pairs . Examples of correlative conjunctions are: 1. both…..and 2. either…..or 3. neither….nor 4. not only….but also 5. whether….or


Example The sick hiker would neither eat nor drink.


Practice Neither Coach Toft nor Coach Rasmussen could believe how hard the team played. The wrestling match was both exciting and high-scoring. Not only are the Badlands rugged, but they are also beautiful.

Subordinating Conjunctions:

Subordinating Conjunctions Subordinating conjunctions connect two ideas by making one idea dependent upon the other. Subordinating conjunctions are in sentences that contain a main idea and a dependent idea . The subordinating conjunction always comes before the dependent idea.


Commas If the dependent idea comes before the main idea, a comma is used to separate the two. If the main idea comes first, no comma is used.


Examples Although Mr. Tatroe was much admired, MMS would not finance a memorial honoring him. The 8 th graders at MMS were incredibly well behaved at the assembly until the presenter gave them all kazoos.


Practice Whenever Jax came to the school, the students loved to pet him. Mr. Swartos praised Troy’s hard word so that he would keep doing so well in school. While Jesse ate dinner, Troy was in Science class.


Interjections! Interjections are used to express feelings or emotions. They are the least used part of speech. Interjections function independently from the rest of the sentence Huh? What does that mean? It is therefore set off from the rest of the sentence by a comma or exclamation mark.
