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.
