What Are Conjunctions?
Conjunctions are used to join words or groups of words together.
Different kinds of conjunctions join different kinds of grammatical structures.
The following are the kinds of conjunctions:
A. COORDINATING CONJUNCTIONS
B. CORRELATIVE CONJUNCTIONS
C. CONJUNCTIVE ADVERBS
D. SUBORDINATING CONJUNCTIONS
When a coordinating conjunction joins two words, phrases, or subordinate clauses, no comma should be placed before the conjunction.
: Cookies and milk.
: at the beach or by the lakeside.
: what you say and what you do.
A coordinating conjunction joining two independent clauses creates a compound sentence and requires a comma before the coordinating conjunction
Tom ate all the peanuts, so Phil ate the cookies.
I don't care for the beach, but I enjoy a good vacation in the mountains.
