Conjunctions

Conjunctions are useful in putting nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, and clauses together when making sentences. There are seven coordinating conjunctions: and, but, or, nor, for, yet, so.

examples

Use “and” when putting two or more things or people together in a group.

“Nor” is the negative form of “or.” It’s often used with “neither.”
…neither…..nor…..

“For” is very similar to “because” and “since.” This is a difficult conjunction to use. It sounds very formal.

“Yet” is similar to “but.” In this usage it’s not the same as the “yet” which is used to express time.

She saw a spider, so she became afraid.
“So” is similar to “because” and “for” but you can’t use the word in the same position. The same sentence above could be written:
