Types Of Conjunctions

Conjunctions are of three kinds: coordinating, subordinating and correlative.

Coordinating conjunctions

Coordinating conjunctions join words or groups of words of equal importance in the sentence.

For example, in the sentence, ‘We will have to leave early, but we will be back in time for lunch’, ‘but’ is a coordinating conjunction that joins clauses of equal importance.

Other coordination conjunctions include ‘and’, ‘but’, ‘or’, ‘not’, ‘for’, ‘yet’, and ‘so’.

Subordinating conjunctions

These conjunctions connect groups of words of varying importance, making one portion of the sentence dependent on another.

For example, in the sentence, ‘Despite Riya’s best efforts, she could not pass the exam’, ‘despite’ is the subordinating conjunction that makes one phrase dependent on another.

Other subordinating conjunctions are ‘after’, ‘if’, ‘although’, ‘if only’, ‘till’, ‘so that’.

Correlative conjunctions

These conjunctions work in pairs to join words or groups of words having equal importance. For example, in the sentence, ‘Either we must leave early, or we must miss the plane’, ‘either…or’ is correlative conjunction that joins clauses of equal importance.

Some correlative conjunctions are ‘either/or’, ‘neither/nor’, ‘both/and’, ‘whether/or’, ‘not only/ but also’.
