About

Conjunctions are words used to connect clauses or sentences or to coordinate words in the same clause, such as "and," "but," and "if."

Conjunctions are a small class of words serving as connectors between words, phrases, clauses, or sentences.

Conjunctions can be considered to include phrases (e.g., as well as), coordinating conjunctions (e.g., or), correlative conjunctions (e.g., either... or), and subordinating conjunctions (e.g., whether).

Questions that fit this tag often ask about how to use a specific conjunction, compare two conjunctions, or ask about the placement of a conjunction in a sentence.
