Conjunctions are what we use to join parts of a sentence. They are able to connect "in such a way that certain relationships among these different parts of the sentence will be established, and the thoughts that all of these convey will be connected." In simpler terms, they allow words or groups of words to be linked together to construct more elaborate ones.

What are they?

Lastly, correlative conjunctions are conjunction pairs. One goes before the first element, and one goes between the two.

Subordinating conjunctions link clauses together. They "describe the relationship between the dependent clause and the independent clause." Subordinating conjunctions can be placed either at the beginning or in the middle of a sentence. In addition, commas are needed between the clauses, regardless of where the conjunction is.

Birds and cats are my favorite pets to own.

Coordinating conjunctions are the most common of the conjunctions. They are placed between two "grammatically equal" words or phrases. The easiest way to remember coordinating conjunctions is to think of the anagram FANBOYS, expanded in the image above.

Coordinating Conjunctions

Conjunctions!

I would want an elephant or a monkey as a pet!

Correlative Conjunction

I really want a cockatoo, since I already have a parakeet.

Subordinating Conjunction

I want either a Goffins or an Eleanora cockatoo.
