Conjunctions are words such as -and, yet, in spite of the fact that, on the grounds that, and so on. Conjunctions have a significant capacity since they join different words, expressions, and sentences together. Without conjunctions, we could make exceptionally basic sentences. 

What is a Conjunction? 

Conjunctions are one of the grammatical features. 

A conjunction is a word that associates two pieces of a sentence. 

Types of Conjunctions 

Coordinating Conjunctions 

A coordinating conjunction joins part of a sentence that are linguistically comparable. It shows that the components it joins are comparable in significance and design: 

There are seven organizing conjunctions: 

  • what’s more, in any case, or, nor, for, yet, so 
  • Take a gander at these models – the two components that the planning combination joins are displayed in square sections ( ): 
  • I like (tea) and (espresso). 
  • (Sam likes tea), however (Anthony likes espresso). 
  • Coordinating conjunctions by and large separate the words or conditions that they join. 
  • While a planning blend joins independent circumstances, it is for the most part right to put a comma before the mix: 
  • I need to fill in as a translator in future, so I am concentrating on French at college. 
  • She is benevolent so she helps individuals. 

The 7 organizing conjunctions are short, fundamental words. They have only a couple of letters. There’s a straightforward technique for reviewing them – their initials spell “FANBOYS”, like this: 

FANBOYS- for, and, nor, but, or, yet and so 

Correlative Conjunctions 

Correlative conjunctions are sets of conjunctions that cooperate. A few models are either/or, neither/nor, and not only/but also. 

  • I either need a chocolate cake or cake. 
  • She neither preferences tea nor coffee. 

Subordinating Conjunctions 

A subordinating conjunction joins a subordinating clause with the main clause. 

Examples of subordinating conjunctions: 

  • Although, as, because, before, after,  how, if, once, since, than, that, though, till, until, when, where, whether, while 


Ram went swimming (main clause) although (subordinating conjunction) it was raining (subordinate clause). 

Subordinating conjunction generally comes toward the start of a subordinate clause. It “presents” a subordinate provision. Nonetheless, a subordinate provision can come later or before the primary provision. Along these lines, two designs are conceivable: 

David went swimming although it was raining

Although it was raining, David went swimming. 

List of Conjunctions 

Coordinating Conjunctions 

 and, nor, for, but, or, yet, so 

Correlative Conjunctions 

both/and, either/or, neither/nor, not only/but, whether/or 

Subordinating Conjunctions 

Later, in spite of the fact that, as, as though, as long as, as much as, when, like, in light of the fact that, previously, when, regardless of whether, despite the fact that, if, all together that, in the event that, if, now that, once, just, provided that, gave that, since, thus, assuming, that, than, however, till, except if, until, when, at whatever point, where, while, any place, regardless of whether, while are a list of subordinating conjunctions.
