CONJUNCTIONS

A conjunction is a part of speech that connects two words, sentences, phrases or clauses together. Conjunctions are invariable and stand between the items they conjoin. There are three types of conjunctions: coordinating conjunctions join two or more items of equal syntactic importance, correlative conjunctions are conjunctions that work in pairs, and subordinate conjunctions link a dependent clause to an independent clause. Here is an (incomplete) list:
