Coordinating Conjunctions

Posted by Manjusha. Filed in English Grammar

Conjunctions can be divided into two broad classes - coordinating and subordinating.

Coordinating conjunctions join pairs of clauses that are grammatically independent of each other.
Examples are: and, but, for, or, yet, so, nor, also, either--or, neither--nor etc.

Words for repeated ideas can often be left out in the second of two coordinate clauses.
