Linking Words (Conjunction) examples

What is conjunction?

A conjunction is used to join the words or phrases and to make the sentence readable. The construction of the sentences is done by the conjunctions by adding the clauses, phrases, and words.

The Conjunction can also be called a link between words or a group of words in a sentence. Moreover, they show a relationship between words, phrases, and clauses in the sentence. It is a common part of English because it is used frequently in multiple sentences.

Conjunctions have two basic functions:

1. Coordinating conjunctions are used to join two parts of a sentence that are grammatically equal. The two parts may be single words or clauses, for example:

Jack and Jill went up the hill.

The water was warm, but I didn’t go swimming.

The 7 coordinating conjunctions are short, simple words. There’s an easy way to remember them – their initials spell “FANBOYS”, like this:

F         A         N         B         O         Y         S

for       and      nor      but       or        yet       so

2. Subordinating conjunctions are used to join a subordinate dependent clause to a main clause, for example:

I went swimming although it was cold.

Before we left home, I had had my lunch.

When she was washing my window, I went to the shop.
