Conjunction


Conjunction

Conjunction is used to join or combine two clauses or sentences. (Clause is not complete sentence. It has a subject and predicate) (Predicate contains the verb and its complement) (Complement is used to complete a grammatical construction)Examples: 
He said that he was fine.
Please inform me when you reach Lahore.
Because, Where, who, what, if, whose, which etc are examples of conjunctions which are used in the center of a sentence and in fact, to join two sentences.

Kinds of Conjunction

Followings are the kinds of Conjunction:
1- Coordinating Conjunction:
It joins two sentences but if we remove it, the sentence gives complete meaning.
Examples:
And, but, where, if, yet, so etc

2- Subordinating Conjunction:
It also joins two sentences but its one clause gives incomplete meaning without the other clause.
Example:
If, although, unless, until, whenever, after, as etc

3- Correlative Conjunction:
These are used altogether and show relation to each other.
Examples:
Either, or, neither, nor, both, not only, but also etc
Rules for Conjunction:
1- Its meaning is complete and clear until and unless both parts of a sentence are used e.g. You will pass if you work hard.
2- All Question Words if used as Conjunction give Positive meaning e.g. what, when, where, who, whom, whose etc
3- “If’ is called Conditional Word” because there is condition in its sentence involved.
4- Tense of both parts of a sentence can be different depending upon time. Its detail is in section of jumbled Sentences.
