Interjections and Conjunctions Mrs. Escobar InterjectionsDefinition An interjection is usually an exclamatory word that usually expresses strong emotion.

Where and When? Interjections may stand alone Hey! Help! These are followed by an exclamation point. Where and When?

Word may be followed by a related sentence. Hooray! We won the championship! Wow! I never thought I could do that! Where and When? Word of strong emotion ends in exclamation point and is separate

from the rest of the sentence. Word of mild emotion ends in a comma and is part of the sentence. Say, are you busy? Caution! Interjections are rarely used in

formal and academic writing! Conjunctions A conjunction is a joiner, a word that connects (conjoins) parts of a sentence.

Types of Conjunctions Coordinating Subordinating Correlating Coordinating Conjunctions The simple, little conjunctions are called coordinating conjunctions And, or, for, but, yet, nor, so For

And Nor But Or Yet So Coordinating Conjunctions When a coordinating conjunction connects two independent

clauses, it is accompanied by a comma: Ulysses wants to play for Georgia, but he has had trouble meeting the academic requirements. Coordinating Conjunctions A comma is also correct when and is used to attach the last item of a serial list Ulysses spent his summer studying basic

math, writing, and reading comprehension. When a coordinating conjunction is used to connect all the elements in a series, a comma is not used. Presbyterians and Methodists and Baptists are the prevalent Protestant congregations in Oklahoma. Coordinating Conjunctions

Coordinating conjunctions can join two sentence elements without the help of a comma. Bob and Michelle sang and danced to the music. Subordinating Conjunction A Subordinating Conjunction (sometimes called a dependent word or subordinator) comes at the beginning of

a Subordinate (or Dependent) Clause and establishes the relationship between the dependent clause and the rest of the sentence. It also turns the clause into something that depends on the rest of the sentence for its meaning. ExamplesSubordinating Conjunctions He took to the stage as though he

had been preparing for this moment all his life. Because he loved acting, he refused to give up his dream of being in the movies. Unless we act now, all is lost. Subordinating Conjunctions If

After Although As as if as long as as though Because Before even if even though

if only in order that now that once rather than since so that than that

though till unless until when whenever where whereas wherever

while Correlative Conjunctions Some conjunctions combine with other words to form what are called correlative conjunctions. They always travel in pairs, joining various sentence elements that should be treated as grammatically equal.

Correlating Conjunctions Examples She led the team not only in statistics but also by virtue of her enthusiasm. Polonius said, "Neither a borrower nor a lender be." Whether you win this race or lose it doesn't matter as long as you do

your best. Common Examples both . . . and not only . . . but also not . . . but either . . . or neither . . . nor whether . . . or as . . . as
