(Conjunctions)
3 Groups, 3 Rules...
Overview
What are conjunctions?
Conjunctions are used to join two sentences
When working with conjunctions, we refer to
them with the abbreviation “VW”
The sentences that we join are referred to
with the abbreviations “S1” and “S2”.
The conjunction (VW) is usually inserted
BETWEEN S1 and S2
The three groups...
There are three types of conjunctions
Each type is called a GROUP.
Each GROUP has a specific RULE
Each RULE tells you what to do with the Verb 1
(V1) in the sentence that follows the
conjunctions(VW)
In other words...
