Conjunctions and Interjections
Transcript of Conjunctions and Interjections
The words and, but, or, nor, for, so, & yet are coordinating conjunctions
Use conjunctions to connect words or word groups of equal importance Examples Dylan or Jessica will help us.
[OR - joins two subjects]
The cars stop and start.
[AND - joins two verbs]
Anna ran across the bridge and up the hill.
[AND - joins two prepositional phrases]
The taxi is fast, yet the train is more fun.
[YET - joins two independent clauses Correlative Conjunctions are "word pairs"
Correlative conjunctions join words or word groups that are used in the same way, such as two subjects or two prepositional phrases
They always travel in pairs, joining various sentence elements that should be treated as grammatically equal. Some Correlative
not only...but also
whether...or Examples... Whether the Giants or the Patriots will win
the 2012 Super Bowl is unclear.
The teams competed not only in a
pitching battle but also in a hitting contest.
[not only...but also] An interjection is a word or phrase
that expresses emotion
If an interjection expresses strong
emotion, it may stand by itself, before
or after a sentence
An exclamation point follows it aha
oh oh no
boo Note: If an interjection expresses mild emotion, join it to a sentence with a comma and? but? or? all aboard the conjunction train!!
(it's FUN!!) a correlating cunjunction is a word "pair" not word pear!! ie: Oh, I didn't know there was homework last night. What is a Hooray! We did it!
