What’s a conjunction?
“Conjoin” means to link, to unite, or to join. Therefore, a conjunction is the part of speech that joins, links, or unites other words or groups of words in a sentence.
And, but, or, either, when and as are conjunctions.
How do conjunctions work?
Conjunctions work by joining words, phrases, and clauses, as in the following examples:
Gladys and Maria are students.
The conjunction “and” connects two nouns.
She will read or write.
The conjunction “or” links two verbs
It is late, but the shop will still be open.
The conjunction “but” joins two independent clauses.
