Conjunctions are an easy, practical and popular means of communicating in English.

By using these ‘little‘ words we can communicate far more than the word itself. Conjunctions such as yet, however, and but can be viewed as stop signs. That is as a listener / reader, when you see or hear these words you understand that what is to follow will not be the same as what came before.

  • ‘She is always coming late to class, but she is the best student.’
  • ‘Hitler came to power as part of a coalition government. However, he soon assumed absolute power.’

 

If we continue the notion of road signs, ‘and‘ is the perfect example of a green light. When using ‘and‘ we understand that what was just said or written is going to have supporting information.Β 

  • ‘I like her very much, and we are going to get married.’

 

Words such as because, for, since, and until also let us know that we will either be getting a reason or more detailed information (including time references); so perhaps we can think of these words as a roundabout, a slight pause rather than ‘yet’s’ full stop!

  • ‘He said he would never go back to that hotel again because the staff was rude.’
  • ‘I was unsure if I could trust him until he told me the truth.’

 

Of course, we can also use ‘and‘ to separate words in a sentence, but we should only do this with two items.

  • ‘She likes oranges and bananas.’

For longer lists (three or more items) we use ‘and‘ to signify the end of a group.

  • ‘He likes football, basketball, baseball, and hockey.’

 

So go take your car for a spin, but don’t forget those red lights. If you see a ‘yet‘, you might want to slow down!

  • β€˜I own a Ferrari, yet I like to drive my 1950s Beetle.
  • β€˜I will never sell this car, for it reminds me of the carefree days of my childhood.’
  • β€˜Since I have nothing to do today, I’ll just get in my car and go for a ride.’
