Excerpt from Lesson:
What is a Coordinating Conjunction?
- A coordinating conjunction is a word in a sentence that is used to connect one independent clause to another independent clause.
- Remember that an independent clause is a group of words that contains a subject and a verb, and it forms a complete thought.
- The coordinating conjunctions can be memorized by remembering the word FANBOYS, which stands for these seven words: for, and, nor, but, or, yet, so.
- In a sentence, following the first independent clause, a comma should always come before the coordinating conjunction.
