What is a conjunction?
A conjunction links words, phrases or clauses and is a type of cohesive device. They can be co-ordinating or subordinating and are used to form multi-clause sentences. A co-ordinating conjunction joins clauses, and other phrases or words that are of the same importance in a sentence. Examples include and, but, or, nor and yet. A subordinating conjunction introduces a subordinate clause. Examples include, when, if, because, although, while, until and since.
