What is a conjunction?
Types of Conjunctions:
Conjunctions are used to express relationships between things in a sentence, link different clauses together, and to combine sentences.
Without conjunctions, we would be forced to use brief, simple sentences that do not express the full range of meaning we wish to communicate. Plus, only using simple sentences would sound unnaturally abrupt and disjointed.
By using different kinds of conjunctions, however, we are able to make more complex, sophisticated sentences that show a connection between actions and ideas.
There are four main types of conjunctions:
- coordinating conjunctions
- subordinating conjunctions
- correlative conjunctions
- conjunctive adverbs.
