Coordinating Conjunctions


I. Theory

Conjunctions are used to connect sentences or clauses. In both English and German, there are different types of conjunctions. This lesson focuses specifically on coordinating conjunctions. Coordinating conjunctions connect or combine independent clauses, words or phrases and convey a relationship between them. Examples of coordinating conjunctions in English are: but, and, or, for, so, etc.

In German, the most common coordinating conjunctions are: aber, denn, oder, und, and sondern. Because these conjunctions connect independent sentences, they do not require any change in word order.
