### Grade 7 English2.11 Types of Conjunctions

 A conjunction is a word that links words, phrases, or clauses. There are three types of conjunctions: coordinating conjunctions, correlative conjunctions, and subordinating conjunctions. Coordinating Conjunctions may join single words, or they may join groups of words, but they must always join similar elements such as subject+subject, verb phrase+verb phrase, or sentence+sentence. When a coordinating conjunction is used to join elements, the element becomes a compound element. Examples: and, but, or, yet, for, nor, so Correlative Conjunctions also connect sentence elements of the same kind, however, unlike coordinating conjunctions, correlative conjunctions are always used in pairs. Examples: both - and not only - but also not - but either - or neither - nor whether - or as - as Subordinating Conjunctions: These are the largest class of conjunctions. They connect subordinate clauses to a main clause. They are adverbs used as conjunctions. Examples: Time: after, before, since, when, while, until Reason: because, since, so that, why Place: where, wherever Condition: if, unless, until, in case Manner: as if, as though, how Directions: Write five example sentences for each of the conjunction types. In the following questions, choose a conjunction (or, but, before, after, because, when, and, or so) to combine the pair of sentences. As a homework, read a book and find conjunctions and identify their types.
