The Coordinating Conjunctions
design by Dóri Sirály for Prezi
WHAT ARE COORDINATING CONJUNCTIONS?
A coordinating conjunction joins parts of a sentence (for example words or independent clauses) that are grammatically equal or similar.
A conjunction is a part of speech that functions as a connector between two sentences, clauses, phrases, or words. We often use conjunctions in speech without realizing it. In writing, they can be effectively used in lieu of starting a new sentence. The proper use of conjunctions allows for more natural flow and rhythm in your writing. The improper use of conjunctions often results in writing that sounds choppy and disjointed.
