Conjunctions

Conjunctions join words, phrases or clauses together. For example:

Elisa ate a chicken sandwich and potato chips for lunch.

In the above example, the conjunction “and” connects “chicken sandwich” and “potato chips”.

There are three types of conjunctions:

·         coordinating

·         subordinate

·         correlative

Conjunctions are essential to writing because they provide a certain relationship for the two things that they are joining.

For example, the relationship that the conjunction "and" provides is that the two things are of equal status. In the previous example, “chicken sandwich” and “potato chips” are both nouns and both are things that Elisa ate for lunch, so they are both of equal status in the sentence.
