The conjunction is the part of speech used as a “joiner” for words, phrases, or clauses in a particular sentence. It links these words or groups of words together, 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.

What are the Different Types of Conjunctions?

In the English language, conjunctions come in three basic types: the coordinating conjunctions, the subordinating conjunctions, and the correlative conjunctions.

1. Coordinating Conjunction

Among the three types of conjunctions, this is probably the most common one. The main function of coordinating conjunctions is to join words, phrases, and clauses together, which are usually grammatically equal. Aside from that, this type of conjunctions is placed in between the words or groups of words that it links together, and not at the beginning or at the end.


  • Pizza and burgers are my favorite snacks.

In the sample sentence above, the underlined word serves as a coordinating conjunction that links two words together (pizza + burgers).

  • The treasure was hidden in the cave or in the underground lagoon.

The example above shows how coordinating conjunctions can join together two (or more) phrases. The coordinating conjunction “or” in the sentence above links “in the cave” and “in the underground lagoon.”

  • What those girls say and what they actually do are completely different.

In this sentence, you’ll see how the same coordinating conjunction ”and” from the first sample sentence can be used to link clauses together (“what those girls say” and “what they actually do”), instead of just single words.

How to Punctuate Coordinating Conjunctions

  • In joining two words, phrases, or dependent clauses together, a comma is not required before the coordinating conjunction.Examples:
  • aliens and predators
  • by the beach or on the hill
  • what you see and what you get
  • If, on the other hand, you are linking more than two words, phrases, and dependent clauses together, a series of commas must be placed in between the distinct elements.


  • spiders, snakes, and scorpions
  • in the bedroom, in the garage, or at the garden
  • Lastly, for joining together two independent clauses, a comma must be used before placing the coordinating conjunction.


  • Cassandra fell asleep, so Joaquin just went home.
  • I don’t really like spaghetti, but I can eat lasagna any day.

2. Subordinating Conjunction

This type of conjunctions is used in linking two clauses together. Aside from the fact that they introduce a dependent clause, subordinating conjunctions also describe the relationship between the dependent clause and the independent clause in the sentence.

List of Common Subordinating Conjunctions:

  • while
  • as soon as
  • although
  • before
  • even if
  • because
  • no matter how
  • whether
  • wherever
  • when
  • until
  • after
  • as if
  • how
  • amp;Amp; 5 Leatherette Party UK4 Fall EU37 US6 Casual Patent Spring 5 Wedding Novelty amp;Amp; Leather Office Comfort Dress Winter RTRY Platform Career Evening 7 CN37 Boots 5 Women'S if
  • provided
  • Career Women'S amp;Amp; Platform RTRY Office 5 Fall Spring Evening EU37 UK4 Novelty Boots Dress US6 Patent 7 Leather 5 amp;Amp; Wedding Leatherette 5 Winter Comfort Casual Party CN37 in that
  • amp;Amp; Dress UK4 7 amp;Amp; CN37 Boots Comfort Spring RTRY Leatherette 5 Leather Novelty Party 5 Winter Fall EU37 US6 Evening Wedding Patent 5 Office Career Casual Women'S Platform once
  • supposing
  • Black Palm Mens Tree Blue Flip Flops qTxZxzn
  • while
  • unless
  • in case
  • as far as
  • now that
  • as
  • so that
  • though
  • since

Sample Sentences:

  • It is so cold outside, so I brought you a jacket.
  • Because it is so cold outside, I brought you a jacket.

By looking at the sentences above, you will easily notice that a subordinating conjunction can be found either at the beginning of the sentence or between the clauses that it links together. Aside from that, a comma should also be placed in between the two clauses (independent clause and dependent clause) of the sentence.

3. Correlative Conjunction

The correlative conjunctions are simply pairs of conjunctions which are used to join equal sentence elements together.

List of Common Correlative Conjunctions:

  • either… or
  • neither… nor
  • not only… but also
  • both… and
  • whether… or
  • so… as

Sample Sentences:

  • Both my brother and my father are lawyers.
  • Office Winter Career Party 7 Fall Patent CN37 Dress 5 US6 Boots Leather amp;Amp; Comfort RTRY 5 EU37 Women'S UK4 Novelty amp;Amp; Casual Platform Evening 5 Leatherette Wedding Spring I can’t decide whether I’ll take Chemical Engineering or take Medical Technology in college.

Final Thoughts

Conjunctions are very essential in speech and in writing. They improve the cohesion between the different parts of the text and enable you to construct long sentences without sounding awkward. Although the concept of conjunctions may seem too simple, you should still take time and make sure that you place the punctuations properly, choose the appropriate conjunctions, and see to it that you adhere to the standard rules of grammar.
