    • subordinating conjunctions such as if, so that, because or while. and 
    • correlating conjunctions such as neither... nor   
    • The fourth group of connectors consists of conjunctive adverbs such as therefore or however

 

  • A small number of conjunctions and conjunctive adverbs can link individual words or phrases; but the majority can only link two clauses.
