  • A word that is used to join two words or sentences is known as a conjunction.
  • Some conjunctions are used in pairs to give a more compact or confirmed meaning. These conjunctions are called Correlative Conjunctions. (e.g. either or, neither nor, etc.)
  • A conjunction used to join two independent statements or two statements of equal rank or importance is called a Coordinating Conjunction. (e.g. and, but, either or, neither nor, or, for, still, only, as well as, else, etc.)
  • A conjunction used to join two statements, one of which is dependent on the other is called a Subordinating Conjunction. (e. g. after, till, before, unless, that (not as a relative pronoun), because, although, though, (sometimes these are also adverbs) until, than, as if, if etc.)
