Hi, I'm Heather Kamins for About.com, and I'm here to talk to you about what a conjunction is.The purpose of a conjunction is to act as a connector, joining words, phrases, or sentences. There are seven coordinating conjunctions: And, Or, But, For, Yet, Nor, and So.You can connect two main clauses - full sentences - with a comma, and a coordinating conjunction. For example: My mother is a doctor, and my father is a carpenter.Subordinating Conjunctions introduce dependent clauses, and includes words and phrases like: Because, Unless, Since, Even Though, and many others. For example: I knew he was mad even though he didn't say so. With a subordinating conjunction, only use a comma if the dependent clause comes first. For example: Even though he didn't say so, I knew he was mad.Thanks for watching. To learn more, visit us on the web at About.com.
