Correlative Conjunctions


Correlative Conjunctions

Correlative conjunctions always appear in pairs -- you use them to link equivalent sentence
elements. The most common correlative conjunctions are "both...and," "either...or,"
"neither...nor,", "not only...but also," "," and "whether...or." (Technically correlative
conjunctions consist simply of a coordinating conjunction linked to an adjective or adverb.)
Correlative conjunctions are used in pairs, in order to show the relationship between the
ideas expressed in different parts of a sentence. For instance, in the following example, the
expression either ... or is used to indicate that the ideas expressed in the two clauses
represent two alternative choices of action.

Conjunction: Conjunction is a joiner, a word that connects (conjoins) parts of a sentence.
Coordinating Conjunctions: Coordinating Conjunctions used to connect two independent clauses.
Correlative Conjunctions: Correlative Conjunctions which always travel in pairs, joining various
sentence elements that should be treated as grammatically equal.
Subordinating Conjunctions: Subordinating Conjunctions used to establish the relationship
between the dependent clause and rest of the sentence.
