The coordinating conjunction

The conjunction, the seventh part of speech, connects words or groups of
words. In the sentence, ‘‘The video producer and the singer selected an inter-
esting location for the shoot,’’ the conjunction and connects the two nouns
producer and singer. Similarly, in the sentence, ‘‘You can swim or jog during
the afternoon class,’’ the conjunction or joins the two verbs swim and jog.

A coordinating conjunction is a single connecting word. The seven coor-
dinating conjunctions are for, and, nor, but, or, yet, and so. An easy way to
remember these seven conjunctions is the acronym FANBOYS, in which the
first letter of each conjunction is used.
