Conjunctions and Interjections
                    Notes over Conjunctions and Interjections 

I. A conjunction connects words or groups of words.

II. Types of conjunctions

   A. Coordinating conjunctions: connect words of the same kind such as adjectives, nouns, verbs, prepositional phrases or independent clauses. 

          for, and, nor, but, or, yet, so

B. Correlative conjunctions: connect the same kinds of words or groups of words as coordinating conjunctions but are used in pairs. 

          both/and, either/or, neither/nor, not only/but also, whether/or

C. Subordinating conjunctions: connect two ideas by making one idea dependent on the other. These words introduce adverb clauses.

         after, although, as, as far as, as long as, as soon as, as though, because, before, even though, if, in order that, since, so that, than, though, till, unless, until, when, whenever, where, wherever, while

III. An interjection expresses feeling or emotion and functions independently from the rest of the sentence. It has no grammatical relationship to any other word in the sentence; therefore, it is always set off from the rest of the sentence with either a comma or an exclamation mark.
