Conjunction, Preposition and Interjection



A conjunction is a word that "joins". A conjunction

joins two parts of a sentence. Here are some example conjunctions:

Coordinating Conjunctions For, And, Nor, But, Or, Yet, So { FANBOYS} Subordinating Conjunction Although, because, unless, until

Conjunctions have two basic functions or "jobs":
Coordinating conjunctions are used to join two

parts of a sentence that are grammatically equal. The two parts may be single words or clauses, for example: - Jack and Jill went up the hill. - The water was warm, but I didn't go swimming.

Subordinating conjunctions are used to join a

subordinate dependent clause to a main clause, for example: - I went swimming although it was cold.

Coordinating conjunctions always come

between the words or clauses that they join.

Subordinating conjunctions usually come at the

beginning of the subordinate clause.

A preposition is a word which shows relationships among

other words in the sentence. The relationships include direction, place, time, cause, manner and amount. EG : She went to the store, to is a preposition which shows direction. : He came by bus, by is a preposition which shows manner. : They will be here at three o'clock, at is a preposition which shows time : It is under the table, under is a preposition which shows place.

A preposition always goes with a noun or

pronoun which is called the object of the preposition.

The preposition is almost always before the

noun or pronoun and that is why it is called a preposition. preposition together are called a prepositional phrase. Eg. by bus, to the store
