Conjunction - Simple Explanation and Examples

Question by Guest | 05/03/2018 at 15:31

What exactly is a conjunction? Can someone give me a simple definition for that and best of all just provide an example of some conjunctions? We had this in grammar at school today and my teacher has expressed so cumbersome that I do not even know what this is roughly about.

A conjunction is a word that connects other words, sentences or phrases. For this reason you can call this part of speech also "binding word".

Typical conjunctions are for example "and" and "or". Here are four example sentences:

  • He is tall and smart.
  • She went to sports and drank a lot of water.
  • Is the car red or blue?
  • They talked while it was raining.

In the first two sentences the word "and" is the conjunction, in the second sentence the word "or", in the third sentence the word "while".
