48 Let’s Review . . .The conjunction is the seventh of the eight parts of speech. Just for the record, here are all eight:NounPronounAdjectiveVerbAdverbPrepositionConjunctionInterjection
49 First, let's start with a basic definition: Conjunctions are words that join words or groups of words. There are two main types: coordinating conjunctions subordinating conjunctions
50 Coordinating conjunctions include: AndOrButForNorThese conjunctions connect words, phrases, and clauses of equal value.
51 Let’s practice . . .Write 3 sentences that include coordinating conjunctions. Do they connect words, phrases, and clauses of equal value?
52 Independent Clauses:Clauses of equal value are called independent clauses and can stand on their own as separate sentences.Example:John is running in this race and I am carrying his water bottle.Each clause can stand alone:John is running in this race.I am carrying his water bottle.Double check your sentences - conjunctions connect words, phrases, and clauses of equal value.
53 Subordinating conjunctions: Subordinating conjunctions introduce dependent clauses.Dependent clauses cannot stand alone as a single sentence.In fact, the clause is dependent on the rest of the sentence for its meaning.
54 Dependent Clauses:Dependent Clauses cannot stand alone as a single sentence.The clause is dependent on the rest of the sentence for its meaning.Example:Since I will not be home, Tina will answer the phone."Since I will not be home" doesn't make sense by itself.It is dependent on the rest of the sentence for its meaning.
55 Subordinating Conjunctions Most commonly used subordinating conjunctions include:Although *WhenBecause *BeforeAs *IfWhileUntilWhetherSinceAfterSo that
