Conjunctions are linking words.
There are two types of conjunction:
Coordinating conjunctions such as ‘and’, ‘but’ and ‘or’.
Subordinating conjunctions such as ‘when’, ‘before’, ‘after’, ‘while’ and ’because’.
Coordinating conjunctions link two words, phrases or clauses together when they are equally balanced.
Daniel is old but he still runs fast.
Giraffes are tall and they eat leaves from trees.
Coordinating conjunctions are used in compound sentences.
Subordinating conjunctions introduce subordinate clauses.
I’m not happy, because you’ve eaten the biscuits.
I hate it when you do that.
Remember, conjunctions can connect your ideas.
