In this lesson, our instructor Rebekah Hendershot goes through an introduction on conjunctions. She starts by explaining what conjunctions are, then moves on to the four kinds of conjunctions: coordinating conjunctions, correlative conjucntions, subordinating conjunctions, and conjunctive adverbs. Lastly she reviews conjunctive adverbs verse subordinating conjunctions.
Conjunctions join two or more parts of sentences—words, phrases, or clauses—and express the relationship between the two parts.
Coordinating conjunctions connect grammatically equivalent elements—things that match. Remember: a coordinated outfit contains matching items, and coordinating conjunctions connect matching elements.
Correlative conjunctions come in pairs and connect grammatically equivalent elements (just like relatives always come in groups).
Subordinating conjunctions introduce subordinate clauses, which depend on the rest of their sentence for their meaning.
Conjunctive adverbs connect independent clauses.
