Types of Conjunction:

Types of Conjunction There are many types of conjunctions:- Coordinating conjunction, Coorelative Conjunctions

Coordinating Conjunctions:

Coordinating Conjunctions One type of conjunction is the coordinating conjunction. They connect words, phrases, and clauses, which are sentences. They connect things of equal value.

Coordinating Conjunctions:

Coordinating Conjunctions There are seven coordinating conjunctions: and but or for nor yet so

Coordinating Conjunctions:

Coordinating conjunctions affect the meaning of your sentence. “And” connects things that are alike or joined together. Ex. I want popcorn and pizza. Coordinating Conjunctions

Coordinating Conjunctions:

“But” is used to connect things that are different or separated. Ex. I want popcorn but not pizza. “Or” is used to offer a choice. Ex. Do I want popcorn or pizza? Coordinating Conjunctions

Coordinating Conjunctions:

“Yet” is used to show a change. When it is used to combine two sentences, you must put a comma before it. Ex. I want popcorn, yet I also want pizza. “Nor” is used to offer a negative choice. Ex. I do not want popcorn nor pizza. Coordinating Conjunctions

Coordinating Conjunctions:

Coordinating conjunctions affect the meaning of your sentence. “So” is used to show a reltionship between things. When it is used to combine two sentences, you must put a comma before it. Ex. I want popcorn, so I made some. Coordinating Conjunctions

Coordinating Conjunctions:

“For” is also used to show a relationship between things. When it is used to combine two sentences, you must put a comma before it. Ex. I ordered a pizza, for I was hungry. Coordinating Conjunctions

Coorelative Conjunctions:

Coorelative Conjunctions Another type of conjunction is called correlative conjunctions. Correlative conjunctions connect words, phrases, and clauses, which are sentences. Correlative conjunctions connect things of equal value. (This means that they will connect a verb with another verb or a sentence with another sentence.)
