- (grammar) A conjunction is a word that joins two other words that are the same kind as each other (two nouns, two verbs, two adjectives, etc.) or that joins two groups of words.
- The word "or" is a conjunction because it joins two other words: Tell me if you see a red or blue car.
- The word "that" is sometimes a conjunction, as in "I think that you are right."
Three common conjunctions:
|parts of speech||noun - verb - adjective - adnoun - adverb - determinative/determiner - article - participle - pronoun - conjunction - preposition - interjection|
|grammatical functions||head - subject - predicate - object - complement - modifier - adjunct - determiner/specifier|
|clauses||independent clause - dependent clause - subordinate clause - relative clause|
