Transcript of Coordinating And Correlative Conjunctions

Coordinating And Correlative Conjunctions
When a coordinating conjunction connects two independent clauses, it is often (but not always) accompanied by a comma.

For example:
Ulysses wants to play for UConn
but he has had trouble meeting the academic requirements.

Ulysses has a great jump shot but
he isn't quick on his feet.

Ulysses wanted to do good on his test
so he studied hard.

Correlative Conjunctions
Correlative conjunctions are words that come in pairs and you have to use both of them in a sentence to make them work.
They are: both/and, whether/or, either/or, neither/nor, not/but, not only/but also, as/as, such/that, scarcely/when, as many/as, no sooner/than, and rather/than.
Write 2 sentences each with different correlative conjunctions.

Introduction: Coordinating Conjunctions
The simple, little conjunctions are called coordinating conjunctions.
They are: for, and, nor, but, or, yet, so. There is an acronym to easily remember these conjunctions which is "FANBOYS".
Try it!
Write two sentences, each with a different coordinating conjunction, then place the comma in the correct place.

Conjunction Junction
There are two different ways to combine sentences. There are Coordinating Conjuntions and Correlative Conjunctions. The differences are the words that they use and that Correlative Conjunctions require two
words rather

than one.
I want either the cheesecake or the frozen hot chocolate.
I’ll have both the cheesecake and the frozen hot chocolate.
I didn’t know whether you’d want the cheesecake or the frozen hot chocolate, so I got you both.
Oh, you want neither the cheesecake nor the frozen hot chocolate? No problem.
I’ll eat them both - not only the cheesecake but also the frozen hot chocolate.
I see you’re in the mood not for dessert but appetizers. I’ll help you with those too.
Bowling isn’t as fun as skeet shooting.
Such was the nature of their relationship that they never would have made it even if they’d wanted to.
I had scarcely walked in the door when I got the call and had to run right back out again.
There are as many curtains as there are windows.
I’d no sooner lie to you than strangle a puppy.
She’d rather play the drums than sing.
