Lesson 78

Parts of Speech - Conjunctions


A conjunction is a word that joins other words, phrases (groups of words), or clauses (groups of words with a subject and verb). Co-ordinate conjunctions join words, phrases, or clauses of equal rank.


The co-ordinate conjunctions are the following: and, but, or, nor, for, and yet. (For and yet can only join clauses.)


Instructions: Find the co-ordinate conjunctions which are joining clauses in these sentences.


1. I do not like the idea, yet I will help.


2. The trip was a delight for us, for we had a great time.


3. The mail has not arrived, nor will it come today.


4. I will speak the truth, or I will not work for you.


5. Mom likes Christmas, but Dad likes Halloween.


6. Ann washes the walls, and Pam vacuums the carpet.
