1 Adverbs An adverb is a word that modifies a verb, adjective or another adverb. An adverb answers one of the following questions about the word it modifies:

5 Conjunctions A conjunction connects words or groups of words. There are 3 types of conjunction. 1. Coordinating Conjunction: connect ideas of equal importance (Always 1 word) Ex. and, but, or, nor, for, so, yet

6 Conjunctions Examples: Did the Italians or the Chinese invent pasta? (connecting what?) Simon overslept and missed soccer practice. (connect what?)

7 Conjunctions 2. Correlative Conjunction: like coordinating conjunctions, correlative conjunctions join similar words or groups of words; however, these conjunctions are always used in pairs.

8 Conjunctions Ex. Both…and, neither…nor, whether…or, either…or, not only…but also Examples: Both oak and walnut are used to make furniture. Not only did Rosa win, but she also broke her record.

9 Conjunctions Correlative Conjunction Examples (cont.) The coach debated whether to kick or to run.

10 Conjunctions 3. Subordinating Conjunction: begins a clause that cannot stand alone and joins it to a clause that can stand alone. Ex: after, although, as, as if, as though, because, before, even though, if, in order that, provided, since, so that, than, unless, until

11 Conjunctions Subordinating Conjunction Examples (cont.) when, where, whereas, while Examples: The fans were quiet while the golfer putted. Although I prefer peaches, I also like strawberries.
