Conjunctions AND — BUT — OR — SO


Conjunctions (and, but, or, so) are used to join together two clauses which are both equally important.

AND = joins two similar ideas together

Exemple: He lives in London, and he studies at University

BUT = joins two contrasting ideas

Exemple: He is Canadian, but she is English.

OR = joins two alternative ideas

Exemple: I could cook some supper, or we could order a pizza.

SO = shows that the second idea is the result of the first

Exemple: She was sick, so she went to the doctor.
