Coordinating conjunctions

Post by natttt

A coordinating conjunction joins parts of a sentence (for example words or independent clauses) that are grammatically equal or similar.

Examples of coordinating conjunctions

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

* I like and .
* , but .

Coordinating conjunctions always come between the words or clauses that they join.

When a coordinating conjunction joins independent clauses, it is always correct to place a comma before the conjunction:

* I want to work as an interpreter in the future, so I am studying Russian at university.

However, if the independent clauses are short and well-balanced, a comma is not really essential:

* She is kind so she helps people.

When "and" is used with the last word of a list, a comma is optional:

* He drinks beer, whisky, wine, and rum.
* He drinks beer, whisky, wine and rum.
