What are Coordinating Conjunctions?

You use a coordinating conjunction “for,” “and,” “nor,” “but,” “or,” “yet” or “so” to join individual words, phrases, and independent clauses. If a clause can stand alone as a sentence, it is an independent clause.

Coordinating conjunctions can also be referred to as coordinators. Note that you can also use the conjunctions “but” and “for” as prepositions.

Coordinating Conjunctions Examples

  • We listened eagerly, for he brought news of our families.
  • She didn’t speak to anyone, and nobody spoke to her.
  • I don’t expect children to be rude, nor do I expect to be disobeyed.
  • They rushed to the hospital, but they were too late.
  • I will go shopping, or I will go camping.
  • Kelly was a convicted criminal, yet many people admired him.
