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.
