Coordinating Conjunctions

Conjunctions that can join single or a group of words are known as the coordinating conjunctions. These conjunctions are used to join only similar elements, such as verb phrase + verb phrase, subject + subject, and sentence + sentence. Some of the coordinating conjunctions are: and, for, but, not, yet, or, and so.

For Example: I went to visit New Zealand and Australia.

Note: A noun phrase can be a single noun, a group of words, or a pronoun that works together as a noun or a pronoun or as the subject or object of a verb.

Correlative Conjunctions

These conjunctions are always used in pairs. The correlative conjunctions are used to join similar elements. Some of the correlative conjunctions are both…and, neither…nor, either…or, not only…but also, whether…or, so…as.

Subordinating Conjunctions

Words that join a dependent and an independent clause are known as the subordinating conjunctions. Here, a clause is a unit that is made up of a subject and a verb.

For example,

“It is hot.” Here, “it” is the subject, and the verb is “is hot” Also, the dependent clause is a clause which needs another clause with it. For Example: Because of the traffic, I was late for work. The sentence above has two clauses, “Because of the traffic,” and “I was late for work.” Here, the first clause does not have a meaning on its own. On the other hand, “I was late for work” is an independent clause. The second sentence holds a unique meaning even if spoken independently. Also, “Because” is the subordinate conjunction here.

There are some more examples of subordinating conjunctions: while, wherever, even if, wherever, after, how, in that, once, unless, as soon as, although, before, when, etc.
