Conjunction


Hi guys... Good morning...
I'd like to tell you that start from this week, I'm going to share everything about English. I hope by sharing it, I can memorize the English subject that I've ever learned. And, now, let's discuss about conjunction. 

Hmm... We usually use this word or phrase when we speak. But, we sometimes feel confuse to put the words in the correct form. OK, let's start learning... :) 

CONJUNCTION
1.    Correlative Conjunction
Correlative conjunctions work in pairs to join words and groups of words of equal weight in a sentence. There are six different pairs of correlative conjunctions:
1.     either...or
2.     not only...but (also)
3.     neither...nor
4.     both...and
5.     whether...or
6.     just as...so
Examples:
·         You can either walk up or take the car.
·         Not only men but also women were chosen.
·         Neither the basketball team nor the football team is doing well.
·         Both the cross country team and the swimming team are doing well.
·         Whether you stay or you go, it's your decision.
·         Just as many Americans love basketball, so many Canadians love ice hockey.

2.    Subordinating Conjunction
Subordnating conjunction is conjunction that join an independent clause and a dependent clause, and also introduce adverb clauses.

After

Once

If

Than
You’d better find the solution soon than complaining.
As long as

3.    Coordinating Conjunction
